A study conducted by Office of Institutional Research compared Just One Mentoring Program with two other retention efforts offered by the college. The study showed that Just One Mentoring Program has significantly more positive impact on student success after controlling psycho-social factors and other factors.

I am learning how to juggle all of my responsibilities, discipline, patience, and courage. I have learned that improving my grades mean consistently producing good work by spending time doing my homework. "

have been more assertive on doing activities in my daily living. I pay more attention to completing work on a process, a schedule that I plan ahead of time. I am more diligent and motivated about getting my work done."
