Abstract/Artist Statement

Students that live on campus but spend most of their time off campus because of direct access to a vehicle may not be committed to achieving success. Should on campus students be allowed to have vehicles if it hinders their academic success? We collected responses from a sample of 700 college students to test a variety of issues including housing situation, self awareness, mode of transportation and time spent off campus. On campus students are those that live in dorms, university apartments and Greek housing located on campus. The commitment to success is based on the on campus students' perception of themselves. Most students away from home want to experience what's new and exciting. If those students have direct access to a vehicle, success may not be the highest priority. I believe that the results will confirm that on campus students who spend a lot of time off campus because of direct access to a vehicle, are not fully committed to achieving success.
