The Contemporary College Student.
Nygreen, Glen T.
The social dimensions of the student condition are defined by seven societal factors. These factors include: (1) the segmentation of radicalism on campuses, which encourages, yet controls, change-rate and change-direction; (2) the intellectual campus climate, which enhances intellectual dissatisfaction and the probability of change; (3) the psychoanalytic frame of reference, which encourages ideological, ethical development; (4) the identification of upwardly mobile students in terms of social class, parental effects, and peer group influences; (5) the rigidifying occupational opportunity structure after graduation; (6) the contest mobility mode, which makes intellectual values secondary to practical achievement in school and life; and (7) the changing role of the undergraduate experience and the interactions of student and the larger society.
