Abstract:

According to the U.S. Department of Education, each fall approximately 14 million students enroll in colleges and universities. In this era of global knowledge and loss of American stature in the international marketplace, today's graduates do possess a valuable commodity - a degree from an American college or university. The investment of time, money, and energy made by college students over the ensuing four years will certainly define their own futures as well as those of the nation and the world. The authors provide encouraging knowledge as to how undergraduates can take full advantage and control of their college experiences, particularly as a vital connecting point between the structured learning environment of the classroom and the unstructured learning environment of the outside world. In-depth interviews with university presidents, leading researchers, and corporate and education visionaries offer unique and, in many cases, overlooked clues to academic satisfaction. In addition, course advisors, who express cautious optimism over the myriad choices in the educational system, and students, who speak frankly about their attempts to adapt to life on campus, bring an immediacy to the perspectives needed in defining the expectations of an undergraduate education. Inside College is a book of timely importance not only for students and their parents, but also for college educators and administrators, psychologists, economists, sociologists, and government and business leaders interested in the progress of higher learning in America.
