Note. n = number of unique student responses.
These same four items related to expectations of relationships were examined by focusing
on the responses of only females. Students' expectations of relationships had a high aggregate
average, whether they persisted or not (see Table 6). Students who persisted had high
expectations of their faculty to care about students (4.60) and about developing close friendships
with other students (4.49). The same was true for students who did not return the second
semester. The early drop outs had high expectations of their faculty caring about students (4.66),
higher than that of the persisters. Developing close friendships with other students (4.48) was a
high expectation as well for early drop outs. Even for the item with the lowest average,
expectations to have frequent contact with faculty outside of class had a high average for both
groups. The standard deviations were smaller for relationships than for involvement
expectations and virtually the same between the two groups, except for the item regarding
contact with faculty outside of class.
