Prior College Experience and Attitude Change during the Middle Years: A Panel Study.
Willits, Fern K.; Funk, Richard B.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v29 n4 p283-300 1989
Examined relationships of previous college attendance to changes in attitudes later in life. Surveyed adults at approximately age 40 and again 13 years later. Found that, for both men and women, prior college attendance was associated with acceptance of less traditional conceptions of gender roles and beliefs about God and lower feelings of anomia at midlife.
