Abstract

As colleges and universities progress further and further into the 21st century, they will continue to grow with an increase in the number of students entering higher education. his increase brings with it, not only a larger population of traditional students, but also a larger population of non-traditional students with differing needs. Therefore, in order to meet the needs of these different populations of students, it may be important to start looking at successful business strategies as a tool for reinforming student affairs divisions. In this paper, I will suggest ten rules of business success, establish by Sam Walton, founder of the Wal-Mart chain of stores, to use as guiding principles in student affairs work.
