Co-Curricular Involvement Characteristics of Bowling Green State University Honors Students.
German, Raechel E.
This study examined the co-curricular involvement of 80 honors students at a large mid-western institution and the amount and type of their commitment to activities and organizations. The population studied consisted of 672 students in the honors program at Bowling Green State University (Ohio) in all stages of their college careers from freshmen to seniors. Students received mailed questionnaires asking about activities, organizations and leadership positions that they had participated in at the university. Of this population, 80 students, or 11.9 percent, responded. Respondents reported a high level of involvement in 78.8 percent of cases, a moderate involvement in 18.7 percent of cases, and only two students reported participating in only one activity. Overall, responses indicated that the majority of honors students are highly involved, especially in the Honors Students Association, academic honor societies and other departmental groups, community service, athletics, and music. Implications of the study support the need for Honors Programs' intervention in students' personal and social development as well as their academic achievement. (Contains 14 references.) (JB)
