The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between student engagement and different colleges within a university. Research has asserted that student engagement is closely related to student learning and that student engagement varies from institution to institution depending on various factors. However, there has been minimal research on student engagement among colleges within the same university. A sample of 120 undergraduate college students (20 from each of the six colleges) was recruited from Rowan University to complete the National Survey of Student Engagement in four different areas: Level of academic challenge, Active and collaborative learning, Student-faculty interaction and Enriching educational experiences. Four one-way ANOVAs revealed that a significant relationship existed between the level of student engagement and the student's college. Specifically, significance for student engagement was found in the area of Educational enriching experiences.
