The Relationship Between Veterans' Participation in School Activities and Their Perceived Ability to Assimilate to Campus Culture
This study examines the relationship between student veterans’ self-perceived level of participation in school activities and organizations and the association participation has with veterans’ level of assimilation to college life. Subjects were one hundred student-veterans from a southwestern university and college. Instruments used were the Veteran’s Involvement Questionnaire (VIQ), a modification of Grover’s (2014) Family Involvement Questionnaire, and the Student Adaptation to College Questionnaire (SACQ) (Baker, 2017). Results reveal a significant correlation between the variables participation and assimilation. Results also suggest the need for further research on other factors that may contribute to student veterans’ assimilation into campus culture.
