The First Year Experience on an Outer Metropolitan Campus: Pacific Rim First Year in Higher Education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

First year business students on an outer metropolitan campus were surveyed to
evaluate their experiences of university. Students enrolled on this campus tended
not have received their first preference, were in longer hours of paid employment
and exhibited greater disengagement with the institution and peers. The survey data
will inform the evoluation of the specific first year program on the campus. The
current survey demonstrates that it is dangerous to simply expect national data to
apply to all institutional campuses.
