"Academic Advising and the First College Year is an invaluable resource for professional advisors, faculty, and administrators working with first-year students. Comprehensive in its approach, including theory, practice, and assessment, it serves as a roadmap and resource for advisors and institutions that are committed to student persistence and success."--Susan Freed, Director of Academic Advising, Lehigh Carbon Community College

A Guide for Families of Commuter Students "is comprehensive and informed by scholarship and good practices."--Kristi S. Mindrup, Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs, Quad Cities, Western Illinois University

"A virtual 'how to' manual for designing, implementing, and assessing a combination of two powerful high-impact practices--first-year seminars and learning communities. Recognizing that context matters, Chism Schimdt and Graziano offer us the bonus of case studies, preserving the unique voice and character of both the writers and the programs surveyed."--Jack Mino, Coordinator, Learning Community Program, Holyoke Community College

A new case study collection highlights the structure, pedagogy, and assessment strategies leading to high-quality first-year seminars. Introductory and concluding essays examine the structural conditions that are likely to support educational effectiveness in the seminar and describe the most commonly reported conditions across cases. What Makes the First-Year Seminar High Impact? offers abundant models for ensuring the delivery of a high-quality educational experience to entering students.
