Examines data from 48 interviews with first-year students at City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) to understand students’ reactions to CCC’s ambitious, system-wide reform. A large majority of the students were enthusiastic about program maps and educational planning. A few students had negative reactions to these very same elements of the reform and nearly half the students reported that they experienced problems with activities such as registration and course planning while new systems and practices were being deployed by the college, pointing to substantial implementation challenges.
