|Title:||"The Freshman Experience": freshmen in dorms engaging and getting involved in university life|
|Abstract:||This project focuses on freshmen in their second semester living in the dorms to gain a better understanding of the pathways in which freshmen get involved and engaged in the activities that the university puts forth. On the basis of interviews, the study finds that most freshmen are exposed to the idea of getting more involved through dormitory life. Resident Advisors, their training, and their ideas of involvement and community play an important role in this regard. The project includes a proposal for continued research.|
