Adrian College Educational Success Project

Adrian College (MI)

The Adrian College Educational Success program provides first-generation students with faculty mentors who were themselves first-generation college students. The program also offers workshops on such topics as time management, managing impulsivity, and understanding financial aid. The first-to-second-year retention rate for the first group of ACES students was 85 percent, which is significantly higher than the 2008-2009 overall first-to-second-year retention rate of 74 percent. Support comes from the CIC/Walmart College Success Awards program.
