Why physics is a great major, from the National Survey of Student Engagement

From the New York Times report:

Students in sciences like astronomy, biochemistry and physics, for example, were more than twice as likely as their peers in other fields to participate in research with faculty members, and among the least likely to combine their academics with some kind of community service.

The National Survey of Student Engagement is an annual survey administered since 2000.

Another result, as described by the Times:

Money troubles interfere with the academic performance of about one-third of all college students, and a similar number of students regularly skip buying required academic materials because of the costs, according to a survey released on Thursday.
