Description

Campus involvement can be a significant contributor to desirable college student experiences, but too much involvement may lead to negative outcomes. To test the relationship between self-esteem and involvement, participants (N = 239) completed a survey measuring extracurricular participation and self-esteem. Although the effect of involvement on self-esteem was significant, both high and moderate involvement were associated with higher self-esteem compared to no involvement. Holding leadership positions was significantly correlated with self-esteem and participation measures.
