Tracey, Jill; Corlett, John
Journal of the Freshman Year Experience, v7 n2 p81-102 1995
A study of the transition from high school to university of 16 freshman track and field athletes investigated academic, athletic, and social aspects. Student challenges included feeling overwhelmed by responsibilities, loneliness, and need to balance freedom and responsibility. Students used two main strategies to maintain perspective: (1) time management and organizational skill; and (2) evolution of the team. (Author/MSE)
