Foreword by Kenneth A. Feldman <p> Not since Feldman and Newcomb's 1969 landmark book, <I>The Impact of College on Students</I> has there been such a comprehensive resource available on what is known about the effect of college on students. In this book, Pascarella and Terenzini take up where Feldman and Newcomb left off, synthesizing twenty more years of empirical research and over 2,600 studies, distilling what is known about how students change and benefit as a consequence of attending college. <p>

An extraordinarily well documented and comprehensive analysis of how the higher education experience affects students. The authors analyze more than 3,000 separate studies.... This volume is a gold mine of information and analysis.
