This is one of my favorite aspects of Claflin because without a safe campus, it is impossible for the students to learn effectively. Also, the administration of Claflin University goes above and beyond to make sure that the new students are successful during their first year in college. I admire the fact that the university cares about the wellbeing of its freshmen due to the fact that most colleges do not pay to the conditions of the new students. It is evident that administration of Claflin University love the students and they want all of the students to become successful
Identifying services that predict student academic success and persistence among TRIO student is important for staff and higher education leaders at Johnston Community College. Jones and Watson (1990) noted that retention or persistence issues are critical to institutional planning and funding. Planning and funding have been greatly affected by the student retention rates. The findings from this study will also help to provide pertinent information on how to improve services that foster student success and leadership skills. This study is significant in that it will examine the factors that critically influence academic success and persistence of students enrolled in the TRIO program at Johnston Community College in Smithfield,
Factory jobs and other blue-collar jobs keep the working college student performing well in college to get out of those blue-collar jobs. The author supports all of his key points lightly, but effectively. While only barely giving examples, he illustrates why the factory job life has pushed him to do well in college. He has used his personal experiences to press him in his classes versus the experiences of his classmates that work mainly retail or restaurant jobs.

The authors continue to affirm that in closing the achievement gap, schools are required to use accountability methods to show student performance. Using data can aid in this process. When implementing great management skills, policy makers and other counseling leaders acknowledge the power of data to demonstrate academic achievement, and to promote counselor’s role in school reform. As a result of data collection and analysis, student will enhance their performance and close the achievement gap.
Counselors will give attention to their students that they are assigned to. This in turn will allow the counselor to evaluate the student’s performance and communicate with the student if any issues arise.

It also becomes motivating to behave yourself when you are aware of your boundaries. Finally, when students practice good behavior, it automatically raises their self-esteem. (Wright, 2005). Building from that idea of collaborating with students to form the classroom rules, setting “observable rules” (Canter and Canter, 1992 p:51) is important too. That means, to form a set of rules, wherein the results in the form of good behaviour can be observed immediately, e.g. raising your hands up to answer a question.
A society where books are burned and reading is banned, seems like a far off dystopian land, but it's happening in America, and it's happening now. Books such as Ray Bradbury's ""Fahrenheit 451"" are being banned daily. The book, ironically, is about a fireman who runs away from society because he refuses to burn books and submit to a life without meaning. Although "Fahrenheit 451" brings up issues pertaining to controversial beliefs, it should not be banned because of it's educational value. By reading this book students are exposed to life lessons and experiences all within the confines of a book.
