The Power Of Pursuing Lifelong Learning, Natalina Decker

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

This study examined student’s access to advanced education and how parents, school personnel, and community members could prepare students for life beyond K-12 education. Due to the CO-VID Pandemic, this study was limited to a literature review of multiple scholarly and peer-reviewed articles. Analyzation of these articles revealed several trends in the opportunity gap, the importance of school-family-community partnerships, and the benefit of resources that assist future high school graduates with the necessary knowledge and tools needed to apply for undergraduate or vocational programs. Findings also indicate that academic preparation and support for young scholars throughout their K-12 education ...

Text Messaging Between School Counselors And Students: An Exploratory Study, Nicholas R. Gilly 2020 Arcadia University

Text Messaging Between School Counselors And Students: An Exploratory Study, Nicholas R. Gilly

Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This exploratory case study examines the impact of text messaging on mentoring relationships when used as an outreach between school counselors and high school students, where established relationships are lacking. An SMS gateway was used to mediate communication between school counselors (N=2) and students (N=5) over a three-month timeframe. The SMS gateway converted email, sent from counselors, to text messages, which were received on mobile devices of students and allowed students to respond back to counselors. Findings indicate that the use of text messaging may ease scheduling of face-to-face meetings between counselors and students, but evidence does not ...

First-Generation College Student Experience In The Financial Aid Process, Kristy Saunders 2020 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

First-Generation College Student Experience In The Financial Aid Process, Kristy Saunders

Educational Administration: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research

How do first-generation college students experience the financial aid process? In what ways does a first-generation status affect the financial aid process for college students? Prior literature shows that first-generation college students are more likely to navigate the financial aid process without the help of parents and are less likely to complete the financial aid process in its entirety. However, there is a gap in prior literature examining the first-generation college student experience within the financial aid process overall. The current study utilizes a hermeneutical phenomenological approach to examine first-generation college student experiences in the financial aid process at a ...

The Impact Of Wellness Training On Resilience, Depression, And Anxiety In College Age Students, Jamie S. Myrtle

Scholar Week 2016 - present

Data suggests that mental health disorders in college students are increasing. University personnel seek to help students better manage their mental health through access to campus counseling centers. Slow enrollment growth has placed pressure on university budgets making it difficult to fully fund counseling centers. Therefore, university personnel seek cost-effective interventions to meet the need. Increasing resilience has shown promise in reducing the overall impact of depression and anxiety. The purpose of the current study was to explore the impact of wellness training on resilience, depression, and anxiety to determine the effectiveness of the intervention in improving resilience and reducing ...


School Counseling At Hansen Elementary, Addi Seybert 2020 University of Northern Iowa

School Counseling At Hansen Elementary, Addi Seybert

CSBS INSPIRE Student Research & Engagement Conference

Over the course of the spring semester, I partnered with Hansen Elementary to fulfill my Psychology Cooperative Education internship. While there, I worked closely with the school counselor (Jen Alexander) to teach children K-6 about things such as emotional well-being, conflict resolution, making goals, and building healthy, lasting relationships. As one of the interns, I was able to meet with students one-on-one as well as assist faculty in classroom lessons. My role at Hansen Elementary has opened my eyes to the world of school counseling and has inspired me to pursue a career in the field.

Hansen Elementary School Counseling, Brianna Swarm

CSBS INSPIRE Student Research & Engagement Conference

Last semester I had the opportunity to work closely with Jen Alexander, a school counselor at Hansen Elementary School. As a school counselor, Jen helps kids develop social skills, improve their learning, understand their emotions, and much more in order to help them thrive while they are in school. My poster discusses all the things I learned from interning at Hansen. It also goes into detail about what school counselors do, the best parts about being there, and research on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how they can affect kids.

Understanding The Academic Habits Of “At-Risk” Student Athletes And Assessing The Effectiveness Of The Saep, Sarah Rutherford 2020 The University of Southern Mississippi

Understanding The Academic Habits Of “At-Risk” Student Athletes And Assessing The Effectiveness Of The Saep, Sarah Rutherford

School of Education Doctoral Projects

The topic of athletics and academics within higher education has been an ongoing discussion since the late 1800s. The ability to support athletes, not just athletically, but academically has been an aspirational goal for many years. The purpose of this study was to identify the specific study habits and academic challenges that student athletes, who are considered “at-risk” and play football for The University of Southern Mississippi, face. This study also aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of the Student Academic Enhancement Program (SAEP) at addressing the academic concerns of this specific population.

This study engaged in an action research approach ...


Student Demographics And Experiences Of Deeper Life Interactions Within Residential Learning Communities, Rishi Sriram, Cliff Haynes, Susan D. Weintraub, Joseph Cheatle, Christopher P. Marquart, Joseph L. Murray 2020 Baylor University

Student Demographics And Experiences Of Deeper Life Interactions Within Residential Learning Communities, Rishi Sriram, Cliff Haynes, Susan D. Weintraub, Joseph Cheatle, Christopher P. Marquart, Joseph L. Murray

Learning Communities Research and Practice

In this article, we discuss the influence of demographic characteristics upon students’ deeper life interactions with peers, faculty, and staff within the context of residential learning communities. When examining student demographic characteristics, we found that Students of Color and first-generation students have lower satisfaction with deeper life interactions with peers, but sophomores, juniors, or seniors had higher satisfaction with deeper life interactions with peers. Students did not differ on their deeper life interactions with faculty based on students’ demographic characteristics. We discuss further the implications of the findings for student engagement and academic success across diverse populations and offer recommendations ...

Investigating The Influence Of Residential Learning Communities On Student Experiences, Laura S. Dahl, Antonio Duran, Zachary J. Hooten, Christopher J. Stipeck, Ethan Youngerman, Matthew J. Mayhew

Learning Communities Research and Practice

Residential learning communities (RLCs) are a subset of living-learning programs (LLPs) where students live together based on a theme and are simultaneously enrolled together in at least one course related to that theme. Yet little research has focused on differentiating RLCs from those LLPs without a connected course. Using existing data from the Assessment of Collegiate Residential Environments and Outcomes (ACREO), we explored this distinction by comparing the experiences of students participating in RLCs with those of students in LLPs that did not have course components. Results from this study revealed that, when compared to students in LLPs, students in ...
