      DEVELOPMENTAL GOALS

For Freshmen to Seniors

         1.   develop competencies
         2.   move toward autonomy and independence
         3.   move forward in successfully managing emotions
         4.   establish identity
         5.   develop mature interpersonal relationships
         6.   develop purpose
         7.   develop integrity

                                                   Arthur Chickering
                        STUDYING
First-year students on average report only occasional contact (once or twice a
month) with their professors. More than half (56%) of all full-time students
devote approximately 15 hours or less preparing for class; about 10% spend 5
or less hours preparing for class. On average faculty members expect a typical
student to spend approximately 16.5 hours per week preparing for class.

Research indicates studying more hours per week has a positive effect on
first-year students GPA. Students who study 21 hours or more per week on
average have an increased GPA by .12 compared to students who study 6 to 20
hours per week realized about a .04 point advantage during their first-year .

What matters to grades is not only the amount of the time spent studying, but
also how efficiently that time is used.

                                                (Kuh, Cruce, Shoup, Kinzie, & Gonyea, 2008)
                   Studying and Balance
Students who spend more time participating in co-curricular activities, working
off-campus, & relaxing or socializing typically have lower first-year grades. For
example, compared to students involved in co-curricular activities 5 or less
hours per week, those who participated between 6 and 20 hours per week had a
.06 point disadvantage in their first-year GPA; students who spent 21 or more
hours per week earned a .11 lower GPA.

Being involved in co-curricular activities has a strong positive impact on the
students’ probability of returning for their 2nd year:

    Students involved in co-curricular activities 5 or less hours per week have a .88
    probability of returning
    Students who are involved 6 to 20 hours a week have a .94 probability of returning
    Students who devote 21 or more hours per week have a .95 probability of returning

Parents are important players in a
student’s well-being and success at Cal
State Long Beach.

At the same time, students are young
adults who need to learn about self-
reliance.
                  CAPS

Your sons and daughters will be working
hard to prepare academically for their
lives as adults.

But the college years are also a critical time
of life when your sons and daughters
work on other major life tasks:

Not just intellectual growth, but…

 Learning to live independently

Some students…

just want a safe place to vent
and find some support.
                 CAPS
There is no problem or issue that is “too
small” to discuss.

If something is big enough to bother your
son or daughter, it’s big enough to talk
about with a counselor.

What if they make
the wrong choice?
CAPS
                    CAPS
There are ways out of a bad situation and into a
good one, and counselors in CAPS are there to help
students with this.



The sooner students come to see a counselor about
their problems, the more likely they will find a good
solution.

We encourage you to become familiar with the
information on CAPS website

               (www.csulb.edu/caps)

 What can parents do to be a partner with
   the university for student success?

1.  Give them space
2.  Think and discuss how much they are working. If they are at home can you expect
    the same amount of chores?
3. Show interest in what they are experiencing
4. Be positive. Negatives distract and can be perceived as nagging
5. Compliment but not too much
6. Look for signs of distress, feeling overwhelmed, etc.
7. Be aware of university news, services, etc.
8. Contact us
9. Understand they will be going through all the “maturity things”
10. In general young women and young men have real differences. Women tend to work
    harder but feel more stress. Men tend to feel less stress but escape into games, etc
11. Not all students will be ready for this, but that does not mean they do not have
    worth or are failures
