Abstract

Academic and social integration have traditionally been measured through interactions between students and the college environment (e.g., contact with faculty and other students outside of class). The proliferation of technology in the academy has influenced such interactions. This study examined how traditional-age, residential, first-year students use e-mail and Found that, although students use e-mail extensively, only a limited amount of that correspondence enhances their academic or social integration.
