This study’s researchers explore the relationships between success in contemporary college students and their college environments at Northern Arizona University. College success is defined as both learning and graduation. Using regression analyses, the NSSE composite scales 'supportive campus environment' and 'academic challenge' significantly predict learning, and being a woman or second generation student significantly predict graduation. Implications for practice include encouraging relationships with faculty and staff, providing opportunities for culturally diverse interaction with peers, and offering mentoring opportunities with faculty that increase the level of enriching and challenging academic experiences. Specific implications for practice are offered for Native American, Latino, first generation, and men students. FULL MANUSCRIPT AVAILABLE AT:
