New freshman students who participated in a mandatory freshman welcome week still
landed in academic dismissal status. The researcher used an electronic survey tool sent to
academically dismissed students who re-enrolled through Continuing Education, the
department responsible for this student group. Despite the information about services and
activities designed to build a connection with campus, students still do not utilize
resources available to them. Major external factors that students struggled with were time
management issues, stress and developing goodstudy skills. The surveyresults yield a
student profile that indicates these students should have been successful but survey
responses indicate multiple reasons they were not academically successful.
