Frank Baker, director of the Rural Student Services Program, said changing lifestyle is one of the biggest reasons for the high attrition rates of rural Alaska students, freedom is another change facing the students, trying to help the students develop skills, the challenge of the classes may be more than what many of the students are prepared for, the Rural Student Services helping the student with the transition, starting before the students arrive on campus, staff members assisting students, helping the students with their classes and pitfalls that they might avoid, reaching out to the high schools with the Upward Bound program, the Rural Student Services being an outgrowth of the old student orientation services, and working with rural high schools to help them to prepare students for college.
