Students speak about finances
Attrition rate discussed among students in an English 1 classes.
Bobbi Villalobos, dean of Student Success, responded in a letter to professor Hiram Sims‘ English 1 classes discussing her thoughts on the recent presentation in which students discussed their views on the attrition rate.
In the letter, Villalobos expressed her appreciation for the opportunity to listen to the students' theories and concerns on the drop-out rate at LBCC.
She said, "As faculty and administration, we can often learn so much from our students."
Villalobos also noted in her letter how many of the ideas that students presented are being taken into consideration
She said, "I found it interesting that money management was mentioned several times and that aspect highlights the need to include skill-building in the required Student Success course we are developing for Promise Pathways students," referring to LBUSD high school grads.
Jonathan Garcia, 22, a sociology major, said, "I think it's great that a member of Student Success is taking such an active approach with students' ideas on the drop-out rate."
Emily Lumley, 21, a music major, said, "I agree that providing information on how students can better manage finances could be beneficial for some people in the long run."
Sim's motivation for the class presentations was to show students the impact writing can have outside of the classroom.
