Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this investigation was to ascertain if there are differences in attitudes among married males, married females, single males, and single females toward 11 attitudinal variables. More specifically the study focused on the impact of the college environment on married students. The students who participated in the study were Oregon State University sophomores, juniors, and seniors. They were 21 through 24 years of age. A total of 370 married and single students was selected for the study. These Oregon State University students provided the source of the information for this study on attitudes. Biographical and attitudinal information about the students was collected through use of the College Student Questionnaire Part II developed by Richard E. Peterson (1968) for Educational Testing Service. The data used in the three hypotheses were collected fall term 1974. Two types of statistical methods were used to analyze the three hypotheses; the analysis of variance model and the linear regression model. The results of the study indicate that: 1. There are differences in attitudes between male and female students, 21 through 24 years of age for the attitudinal variables: family independence, social conscience, and cultural sophistication. 2. Married students' attitudes are different from single students' for the attitudinal variables: satisfaction with the faculty, study habits, extracurricular involvement, family independence, peer independence, liberalism, and satisfaction with major. 3. Males and females have similar attitudes for: satisfaction with the faculty, satisfaction with the administration, satisfaction with students, study habits, extracurricular involvement, peer independence, and liberalism. 4. Married students are similar to single students in attitudes for: satisfaction with the administration, satisfaction with students, social conscience, and cultural sophistication. 5. The empirical evidence of this study suggests that sex identification does not interact with marital status when attitudes are expressed. 6. Student attitudes cannot be predicted from their chronological age or by their class standing in college.
