JUNIOR COLLEGE HONOR STUDENTS WHO WERE INITIATED INTO PHI THETA KAPPA FOR SELECTED YEARS DURING THE PERIOD 1947-1965.
GARRETT, LOUIS W.; SCHULTZ, RAYMOND E.
A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO SELECTED ALUMNI AND CURRENT MEMBERS OF PHI THETA KAPPA TO DETERMINE (1) PRE-COLLEGE BACKGROUND, (2) JUNIOR COLLEGE ACTIVITIES, (3) TRANSFER SUCCESS, (4) OPINIONS ON JUNIOR COLLEGE, (5) COMPARISON OF JUNIOR AND SENIOR COLLEGES, (6) HONORS AND ACTIVITIES IN SENIOR COLLEGE, (7) UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE MAJORS, (8) POST-GRADUATE PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES, AND (9) POST-GRADUATE COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES. THE CONCLUSIONS DRAWN FROM THE REPLIES ARE THAT (1) PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE PROVIDING A GOOD EDUCATION FOR THE ACADEMICALLY TALENTED, (2) THIS SUPERIORITY CONTINUES IN TO SENIOR COLLEGE, IN BOTH STUDY AND EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, (3) THESE HONOR STUDENTS CONSIDER THEIR JUNIOR AND SENIOR COLLEGE TEACHING GENERALLY EQUAL IN QUALITY, (4) THE FRATERNITY PERFORMS A SIGNIFICANT EDUCATIONAL SERVICE BY INSPIRING AND REWARDING EXCELLENCE, (5) THE MEN TRANSFERS TEND TO SELECT SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING MAJORS, AND (6) THE HIGH PERCENTAGE OF BOTH MEN AND WOMEN WHO ENTER EDUCATION ARE LIKELY PROSPECTS FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE TEACHING. THE AUTHORS SUGGEST FURTHER RESEARCH ON (1) POSSIBLE DIFFERENCES IN PERSONALITY OR VALUES BETWEEN HONOR-STUDENT MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS OF PHI THETA KAPPA, (2) PARALLEL STUDIES OF JUNIOR COLLEGE HONOR STUDENTS AND GIFTED FIRST- AND SECOND-YEAR SENIOR COLLEGE STUDENTS, AND (3) THE POSSIBLE VALUE JUDGMENTS INFLUENCING SO MANY TO CHOOSE SCIENCE CAREERS.
