Gatz, Lisa B.; Hirt, Joan B.
Review of Higher Education, v23 n3 p299-318 Spr 2000
Examined how traditional-age, residential, first-year students (n=23) use e-mail and found that, although students used e-mail extensively, only a limited amount of their correspondence enhanced academic or social integration. Classification of messages (n=4,603) indicated that 10.2 percent of e-mail messages went to professors or classmates, while 58.2 percent went to friends. (DB)
