Asian American students' adjustment to college : does membership in an ethnic student organization make a difference?
The current study examines whether or not Asian American students who participate in Asian-focused student organizations are more "adjusted" (i.e., academically, emotionally attached to institution, feeling connected socially with others at institution), than Asian American students who are not members of ethnic-focused organizations. Among 117 Asian American college students, it was founded that students who were members of ethnic student organizations (ESOs) were more enculturated and students who were not members of ESOs were more acculturated. Analysis showed that ESO membership was associated with stronger levels of adjustment, which in turn was associated with lower levels of acculturative stress.
