DEVIANT SUBCULTURES ON A COLLEGE CAMPUS.
FLACKS, RICHARD; NEWCOMB, THEODORE M.
THIS STUDY EXAMINES SOME OF THE DETERMINANTS AND EFFECTS OF CERTAIN ASPECTS OF THE INFORMAL SOCIAL STRUCTURE FOUND ON THE CAMPUS OF BENNINGTON COLLEGE, VERMONT. THE STUDY WAS DESIGNED AS A REPLICATION, AS NEARLY AS POSSIBLE UNDER CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES, OF A STUDY CARRIED OUT AT THE SAME COLLEGE DURING THE 1930'S. THE EARLIER STUDY DEMONSTRATED THE IMPACT OF COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION ON CERTAIN ATTITUDES OF STUDENTS. THE LATER ONE ATTEMPTS TO DETERMINE SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CURRENT NORMS AMONG BENNINGTON STUDENTS AND THOSE FOUND NEARLY 25 YEARS EARLIER, AS WELL AS TO COMPARE CERTAIN EFFECTS OF EACH SET OF NORMS. FINDINGS TENDED TO SHOW THAT COLLEGIATE DEVIANTS (1) TENDED TO HAVE FRIENDS WHOSE ATTITUDES WERE SIMILAR TO THEIR OWN, (2) CHANGED THEIR ATTITUDES WITH RESPECT TO BENNINGTON'S NORMS SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THAN NONCOLLEGIATE DEVIANTS, AND (3) WERE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE LIKELY THAN NONCOLLEGIATE DEVIANTS TO BE SEEN AS DEVIANT BY OTHER STUDENTS.
