Class attendance and out-of-class study time are known to be strongly associated with student success. The paper examines two other uses of time as influences on academic outcomes in college: those devoted to active engagements with friends and community as opposed to passive entertainments, and those that connect students to campus life rather than separating them from campus life. Controlling for students’ socio-demographic backgrounds, previous academic achievements, and social psychological stressors, we find that “activating” uses of time are associated with higher levels of academic conscientiousness and, through academic conscientiousness, with higher GPAs. However, uses of time that connect students to campus life show inconsistent effects.

More distressing than these discrepancies is the fact that all the evidence indicates that the wealthy are becoming wealthier while the poorer areas are becoming relatively poorer. In the richer countries there has been an increasing trend toward equality of opportunity; on the other hand, most of the poorer countries have preserved as great internal inequalities among individuals, classes, and regions as there have ever been. In many, the inequalities are still growing.
