dc.description.abstractThe few brief months between the last semester of high school and first semester in college represent a substantial period of change in the lives of students. This study utilized a survey of second semester college freshmen to explore students’ extracurricular involvement during their senior year of high school and first semester in college in relationship to their academic performance and responses to three self-assessment scales: motivation, self-esteem, and communication apprehension. The study did not find a significant relationship between level of student involvement and academic performance or perceived motivation, self-esteem, or communication apprehension.en_US
