A recent study conducted by U.S. News and World Report concluded that about 25% of freshman students will not return to the same institution for their sophomore year. Reasons for such high attrition rates across the U.S. vary between institutions, but most often, are the result of students’ initial overall satisfaction with the institution and acclimation with its facilities and programs. The first and most critical step in improving attrition rates is to listen to feedback from the students and gain insight into overall satisfaction with their experiences before it’s too late. As the first semester is well underway, now is the time to get some of this valuable feedback from students.
