  • 14. Conclusion:
    Overall students self-confidence in academics have been highly positive versus negative.
    Since students are confident in academics then the lower quality in personal behaviors (Grades, Volunteer Work, Exercise, etc) are a result of other behaviors.
    Risky Behaviors – Social Behaviors
    Drinking/Partying
    Facebook/Networking/Relationships

    Local College Administrators should be worried. Not because of diminishing academic confidence, but because of social distractions that every college student faces and struggles to come to terms with.
