Cognitive Impacts of Living on Campus versus Commuting to College.
Pascarella, Ernest; And Others
Journal of College Student Development, v34 n3 p216-20 May 1993
Tested hypothesis that living on campus fostered cognitive growth by estimating relative first-year gains in reading comprehension, mathematical reasoning, and critical thinking of resident (n=40) and commuter (n=170) first-year college students. Controlling for precollege cognitive level, academic motivation, age, work responsibility, and extent of enrollment, resident students had significantly larger first-year gains in critical thinking than did commuters.
