Abstract

The records of the first-time, full-time freshmen (FFF) minority students who enrolled in the past three falls and their trend of attrition are discussed. The Office of Minority Programs (OMEP) actively participates in its efforts to recruit and retain underrepresented students. One of the purposes of this program is to help these students to feel a part of the college. The program also aims at giving the FFF minority students a vision until they have a chance to take a course on engineering.
