This study examined the relationship between advising satisfaction and first-year students' sense of belonging and retention to their second year. Using the Student Experience in the Research University survey, this study suggests that students' satisfaction with faculty, peer, college/staff, and department advisers is positively predictive of their sense of belonging while only students' satisfaction with college/staff advisers is predictive of their retention.
