Noldon, Denise F.; Sedlacek, William E.
Journal of the Freshman Year Experience & Students in Transition, v8 n2 p43-56 1996
Comparison of the responses of Asian, black, and white honors students attending a first-year seminar at a large research university found that Asians differed most often from white and black students on all issues. Academic issues most often engendered group differences. Results suggest that racial subgroups in the honors student population have special needs requiring unique programs and services. (Author/MSE)
