In recent years, there has been a much larger emphasis placed upon the importance of student involvement to achieve success, especially at the collegiate level. Research has shown that involvement not only helps students to practice better time management skills, but also allows them to connect with and learn from other students who share similar interests and passions. At the college level, students who become involved often feel connected to the school and as if they can actually make a difference. I am hoping to explore this topic through my Senior Honors Project to further understand the effects that student involvement has on a student’s college experience.
I chose to select this topic after becoming involved at the University of Rhode Island throughout my four-year college journey. I can certainly explain the effects that student involvement has had on my college experience as a marketing major in the College of Business Administration; however, this project allowed me to further understand how student involvement affects other URI students studying business that are different than myself.
