Participation in Co-Curricular Activities: Nontraditional Student Perspectives
Tan, David L.; Pope, Myron L.
College and University, v83 n1 p2-9, 11 2007
Research has demonstrated consistently that participation in co-curricular activities benefits students' retention rates and educational outcomes. However, the applicability of these findings to nontraditional students has not been clear. An understanding of the factors promoting and inhibiting these unique students' participation is needed prior to determining the applicability of these studies. The present study evaluates these students' perceptions of involvement in co-curricular activities in order to establish a baseline for future studies. (Contains 3 tables.)
