About Strive 2 Drive
Brazosport College’s commitment to student success has led to record-setting enrollment in workforce programs that support our regional economy. Completion rates in all programs continue to climb. More students than ever are earning certificates and degrees at BC, successfully transferring to study for advanced degrees at universities or directly entering the job market in their chosen field of study. This is what student success is all about and why we are proud to advocate “community college first.”
To further enhance student success outcomes, in April of 2017, Brazosport College introduced the Strive 2 Drive program, an initiative that encourages completion of educational goals. The goal of this program is to engage students in activities which research shows results in higher persistence and graduation rates. Specifically, this program encourages and rewards successful completion, as well as involvement in more co-curricular activities, such as financial planning, money management and tutoring services.
We are excited to report on the program outcomes, as we have completed the first year with a student winning a new Honda Civic. Highlights for the year:
1,690 Brazosport College students were eligible for the drawing to win a new car.
Students earned more than 138,000 points for participation in activities that qualify for Strive 2 Drive points.
In fall 2017, Student Life saw a 10 percent increase in participation in campus events and activities.
Retention rates increased by 4 percent from the previous year from fall to spring. This is the highest retention rate in the past two years.
The Strive 2 Drive team was nominated by their peers for a college “Team Innovation” award highlighting the success of the program.
