Campus Culture Impacts on Student Success
MetadataShow full item record
This study using college students at a midwestern large university attempted to find a link between acculturation of the students and their academic success, GPA. 190 students were asked a range of questions pertaining to the University culture, values, goals, and way of thinking. While no link was found, a successful measure was adapted from other acculturation measures to fit the student population. Moving forward, student satisfaction, levels of stress, and other success measures should be used to gain more of an understanding for how acculturation impacts individual students. Going forward more needs to be understood looking at university acculturation on a quantitative level.
