What Matters in College? by Alexander W. Astin

Book Description

From the author of Four Critical Years-a book the Journal of Higher Education called the most cited work in higher education literature-What Matters in College? presents the definitive study of how students change and develop in college and how colleges can enhance that development. Based on a study of more than 20,000 students, 25,000 faculty members, and 200 institutions, the book shows how academic programs, faculty, student peer groups, and other variables affect students' college experiences.
