Effects of extracurricular activities on retention of career college students
With ever increasing enrollment in career focused colleges across the United States it is becoming increasingly important to stay cognizant of the needs of the students enrolled in these schools. This capstone explores various retention theories dealing with student involvement as they apply to non-traditional career college students and also surveys current career college students for input on participation in extracurricular activities. It seeks to provide a guide for career colleges in determining what type of activities to offer to students and feedback from students on how to implement them. Results from the students surveyed show that they are eager to have opportunities to get involved on their campus, but generally want different options than what are provided at a traditional four year college.
