Adjustment to College. A Study of 10,000 Veteran and Nonveteran Students in Sixteen American Colleges.
Frederiksen, Norman; Schrader, W. B.
After World War II there was a great influx of veteran students into colleges and universities across the nation, partially because of the G.I. Bill passed in 1944. This study examines the records of 10,000 college students of 1950 and compares veteran records with nonveteran records with regard to academic adjustment, personal characteristics, age and general background, motivation, worries, and student-college relationship. Also discussed are the G.I. Bill and how college students spend their time. Two of the major findings show that: (1) veteran students prove to be superior achievers as compared with nonveteran students; and (2) students from families whose income was under $2,000 a year did better than the students whose families earned more.
