Stressor severity was not associated with adjustment, nor did made meaning moderate the relationship between stressor severity and adjustment to college.: These findings provide preliminary evidence that making meaning of stressful military experiences can promote academic, social, and emotional adjustment to college among SSM/Vs and has implications for incorporating meaning making strategies into university and clinical programs aimed at promoting adjustment to college in this population.
