Do Honors Students Study More? Exploring Patterns of Time Use for Honors College Students

This study explored time use on a variety of activities for honors and non-honors students with data from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). Analyzing survey responses from 8,672 students at 27 different U.S. colleges and universities, researchers investigated how much time students spent preparing for class, participating in co-curricular activities, working for pay on and off campus, doing community service/volunteer work, and relaxing/socializing. A series of regression models suggest that honors college participation is a significant positive predictor of time spent on co-curricular activities, working on campus, and community service, even after controlling for demographic and institutional characteristics.
