How much of student retention on campus, students choosing to continue enrollment semester to semester and year to year, is an emotional choice and how much is a rational choice?
Do different students, Louise and Larry from the campus lower / minority class contrasted with Misty and Markey from the campus middle / majority class, have different emotional / rational ratios?
Do campus structural and organizational processes offset negative feelings?
What are the emotional reasons that help students to stay?
Can we give any student an emotional reason to stay?
