Voluntary Freshman Attrition and Patterns of Social and Academic Integration in a University: A Test of a Conceptual Model
Terenzini, Patrick T.; Pascarella, Ernest T.
Research in Higher Education, 6, 1, 25-43, 77
The validity of Tinto's (1975) theory of student attrition, which asserts that withdrawal relates most directly to students' integration in the social and academic systems of an institution, is examined. This study supports that theory and also suggests that informal interaction with faculty plays an important role as well. (Editor/LBH)
