Abstract

Academic advising satisfaction is highly correlated with retention in higher education. Thriving Quotient survey responses were collected from undergraduate students at a private, liberal arts college in the Pacific Northwest. Using a multiple regression analysis, this study examined what student characteristics and collegiate environments affect student satisfaction with academic advising. The results indicate that campus residency, amount of time spent in student–faculty interaction, and the quality of student–faculty interaction are statistically significant factors in academic advising satisfaction.
