    Not the kind of action-packed book I’ve been reading lately, but Pascarella's How College Affects Students packs a punch. The author provides a wide-ranging study on the impacts colleges have on student learning. Part of the strength of this study goes to how specific educational practices make lasting impact. Tons of research. Not the kind of action-packed book I’ve been reading lately, but Pascarella's How College Affects Students packs a punch.

    Obviously this is a solidly-researched classic.

This is deeply strange, and says a great deal about our mental images of higher education in the US, and how they differ Obviously this is a solidly-researched classic.

    The "bible" for professionals in college student development. Filled with great info and research findings. As a result, the chapters are SO LONG (for reading a chapter and collecting articles for doing a paper every week). The "bible" for professionals in college student development.
