Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the involvement patterns of selected international graduate students at Rowan University. This study focused on the involvement patterns of international graduate students associated with their overall college experience, interactions with students and faculty, and the use of campus services designed to promote student satisfaction. This was a total population study since there were 39 international graduate students enrolled at the Rowan University Glassboro, NJ campus during the spring 2017 semester. Quantitative research, through the use of an online survey, was used to collect data. Quantitative data analysis confirmed findings from previous studies having to do with student involvement, academic success, and institutional satisfaction. Furthermore, the findings suggest international graduate students were satisfied with Rowan University's college experience and institutional services.
