Summary

This study examined factors in the undergraduate classroom experience that students associate with vitality in the classroom. The study used measures reflecting concepts from the literature on the fit between student and institution, including academic and social integration, student effort and involvement, encouragement of family and friends, financial need and ability to pay, race and campus climate, and goal clarity. Multivariate regression analysis was used to evaluate responses (n=496) to an undergraduate outcomes survey conducted in 1994. The study found the most beneficial classroom experiences were reported by upper division students who perceived a campus climate of racial harmony and tolerance and reported the highest levels of academic integration in the form of faculty concern for students and the students' own academic effort and involvement.
