The Differential Patterns of College Involvement between Transfer and Native Students
Wang, Xueli; Wharton, Barbara I.
Journal of The First-Year Experience & Students in Transition, v22 n1 p49-66 2010
Guided by a conceptual model of student involvement, this study examined the patterns of undergraduate student involvement in academic and social activities and student services, focusing on a comparison between transfer and native students at a large, Midwestern public research university. The results indicated that compared to native students, transfer students did not seem to differ much in academic involvement; however, transfers were less involved socially, used fewer student support services, and participated less in campus events and student organizations. (Contains 2 tables, 1 figure and 1 note.)
