Students who are actively involved in their own learning are much more likely to be successful in college than those who assume a passive roll. Colleges and universities offer students multiple opportunities both inside and outside the classroom to become engaged with new ideas, people and experiences. There are many ways to measure the effectiveness of these opportunities and help students understand the benefit of these programs and the potential value they add to the college experience.
