Abstract

This study compared first-semester college students who completed college transition courses that incorporated information on emotional, communication, and critical thinking skills with students who completed first-year experience courses that did not incorporate these applied emotional concepts. Results indicated that the first group showed a greater increase in the ability to understand, regulate, and harness emotions and a higher retention rate.
