The influence of involvement with faculty and mentoring on the self-efficacy and academic achievement of African American and Latino college students  [cached]
Stacie Craft DeFreitas,Antonio Bravo Jr.
The Journal of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning , 2012,
Abstract: African American and Latino college students were surveyed to examine the influence of involvement with faculty and mentoring on self-efficacy and academic achievement. It was hypothesized that involvement with faculty and mentoring were related to greater academic achievement. It was suggested that the relationship of these factors was mediated by self- efficacy. Involvement with faculty and self efficacy were significantly related to academic achievement. The relationship between involvement with faculty and better academic achievement was partially explained by higher self-efficacy. Possible explanations for mentoring not being predictive of academic achievement are provided and the significance of faculty-student interactions is discussed.

Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2020, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2020.131003
Abstract: With the rapid progress of social economy, online tourism booking has newly become a highlight for China’s tourism trade and its development. College students, who have abundant disposable time, gradually build up as great tourist forces adept at using network resources. By both literature research and empirical research, this paper explores the factors affecting college students’ online tourism decision-making. By establishing college students’ online tourism booking behavior model based on TAM, and empirically analyzing 161 pieces of data based on SPSS22.0 and PROCESS macro plug-in, the hypotheses and modified model are verified. According to the results, perceived usefulness is still the most important factor in the college students’ online tourism booking behavior model, while perceived ease of use is another essential one. Usage attitude and usage intention are combined into a common factor—“usage attitude and intention” affecting the model; Negative Internet word-of-mouth plays a moderating role in the relationship between perceived usefulness and usage attitude and intention, and perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use together act as an intermediary in the model.

Abstract: Despite the well-documented health benefi ts of physical activity, many college students are not physically active on a regular basis. However, the university setting provides students with skills and knowledge about healthy lifestyles, especially in physical education and sport classes. The purpose of this study was (a) to provide descriptive data about stages of behavior change and habitual physical activity levels in representative sample of physical education and sports college students; and (b)to investigate the congruence between stage of behavior change and self-reported habitual physical activity levels in the college sample. A sample of 590 college students (270 girls and 320 boys) aged 18-35 years old were included in the study. Stages of behavior change for physical activity adoption was assessed with an algorithm based on transtheoretical model. The short version of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire was used to assess the habitual physical activity. The results showed that grade level and period may play a signifi cant impact in habitual physical activity among college students of both gender. Stages of behavior change and habitual physical activity level were signifi cantly related to some socio-demographic variables, such as gender, age, economic status, habitation, time of work, overweight and tobacco use. The magnitude of sensitivity, specifi city and efficiency showed that the congruence between stage of behavior change and self-reported habitual physical activity levels is fragile, especially in girls. In conclusion, the fi ndings of study represent a fi rst step in better understanding the socio-demographic factors associated with the adoption of a regularly active lifestyle among physical education and sport college students. The results reveals that the stages of behavior change algorithm used in the study not is appropriate for to identify the levels of habitual physical activity and need to be further investigated in the college population.

BMC Public Health , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2458-9-241
Abstract: A cross-sectional survey of college students was conducted in April-May 2006. A self-administered questionnaire was completed by 573 male students. Association between premarital sex and the explanatory variables was assessed in bivariate analysis using Chi-square tests. The associations were further explored using multivariate logistic analysis.Despite the religious and cultural restrictions, about two-fifths of survey respondents (39%) reported that they have had premarital sex. The study has also shown that substantial proportions of students indulge in sexual activities as well as risky sexual behavior. Sex with commercial sex workers, multiple sex partners, and inconsistence use of condom with non-regular partner was common among the students. Less than two in five male students (57%) had used condom at the first sexual intercourse.The prevalence of premarital sex varied on different settings. Older students aged 20 and above were more likely to have premarital sex compared with younger students aged 15–19. Men who had liberal attitude towards male virginity at marriage were almost two times more likely to have engaged in premarital sex compared to their counterparts who have conservative attitude towards male virginity at marriage. Moreover, those students who believe in Hindu religion were more than two times (OR = 2.5) more likely to have premarital sex compared with those who follow other religions. Furthermore, those men who have close unmarried friends who have experienced premarital sexual intercourse were eight times (OR = 8.4) more likely to be sexually active compared to those who did not have such sexually active friends.Prevalence of premarital sexual intercourse and risky sexual behavior are not uncommon in Nepal. Young people are exposed to health hazards due to their sexual behavior; hence sex education should be provided. School or college based sexuality education could benefit even out-of-school youths, because their partners often are student
