Abstract

This study investigates the dual role of students, balancing academic responsibilities with active engagement in lecture-related activities. Focusing on the Faculty of Economics at State University of Medan, the research evaluates the extent of student involvement in lectures. It also explores correlations between lecture engagement, Grade Point Average (GPA), and on/off-campus activities. Utilizing a survey method, data was gathered from students who completed the Course Registration System (KRS) in the even semester. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was employed for data analysis. Findings reveal high levels of student engagement in accounting education courses. Additionally, GPA significantly influences course engagement (t-statistic: 1.965), while both on and off-campus activities exert a notable impact (t-statistic: 10.958). This study sheds light on the intricate interplay between student involvement and academic performance in economics education.
