dc.description.abstract This thesis has been an investigation of the relationship between type of college student residence and the study habits of college students. In this survey, the study habits of college freshmen were measured twice with the Brown-Holtzman Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes. Students were tested on the SSHA before entering college and after seven months of college attendance. The findings have outlined differences in study habits and attitudes among several residential aggregates of students. The research also demonstrated the type and amount of change in measures of study habits by residential groupings during the first year of college attendance.This research has traced the phenomenon of a decline in freshman study habits and attitudes largely to changes in scores on the SSHA indexes of Teacher Approval and Educated Acceptance. Changes in these scores reflected a decline in student approval of teacher’s behavior and methods and of educational objectives, practices, and requirements.In addition, this research demonstrated that a number of differences in study habits and attitudes were associated with family income, sex, academic reference group, extracurricular activity, hometown size, and student’s attitude about his residential location.
