dc.description.abstractStudent veterans are a unique and growing segment of the college population, and there is very little quantitative research on their perceptions, needs, and characteristics. This study empirically tested themes from qualitative articles as well as replicated results from previous empirical studies with different instruments. A new instrument, the College Student Experiences Scale (CSES) was developed and validated to empirically test what had been derived from previous literature. Veteran, nontraditional, and traditional students did not differ in stress from family, socioeconomic status, prevalence of first-generation student, feelings of isolation, respect toward faculty, cultural experience, need for structure, study skills, or academic interaction with faculty. They did differ in class format preference, importance of school location and cost, ability to relate to other students, frustration with classroom behavior, maturity, leadership, time socializing with peers, and academic stress. These differences were assessed using a combination of previously validated measures and the CSES. Results were discussed in terms of background, environmental, social integration, and academic integration variables.
