FRESHMAN YEAR EXPERIENCE MAP

Tuesday, December 9, 12-4pm
Smith Memorial Student Union 236



As part of the PSU retention efforts, the University Studies, in collaboration with Student Affairs division, is organizing a half day charrette, an event to create a map which would reflect freshman year experiences of our students. The map will contain information on experiences and key events in freshman life during an academic year and will be used to create effective and timely communication with Freshman Inquiry students throughout a year, connect them with the appropriate resources as well as for other interventions aimed to help students have a rich and successful experience at PSU.

FRINQ Student Profile

Student Success

Academic Preparedness/Plan Students who reported intending to graduate from PSU had a higher fall-to-fall retention rate than others. First-generation students tended to leave between fall and winter terms. Students who have high school GPA below 3.0 tended to have lower fall-to-fall retention.

Financial Resources There appeared to be no difference in retention based on income status (Pell Grant and other need-based aid eligible v. Not eligible) Students who report finances as a top concern tended to have a lower retention rate than those who reported academics as a top concern.
