How Residential College Students Adjust Socially and Emotionally to First Year University.
Stevens, Christopher D.; Walker, Beverly M.
Higher Education Research and Development, v15 n2 p201-21 1996
A study of 126 traditional-age freshmen at the University of Wollongong (Australia) found student social and emotional adjustment was influenced by both circumstances and student attitude. Membership in a particular discipline group predicted better adjustment, and male and female students adjusted in different ways. Implications for counseling and program development are examined.
