College Student Subcultures: Implications for Student Personnel Administration.
Walker, Jimmy R.
In the typology of college student subcultures developed by Clark and Trow, four subcultures emerge: (1) the academic, (2) the collegiate, (3) the nonconformist, and (4) the vocation. This study investigated selected psychosocial factors in the four subcultures. The Study of Values and The College Student Questionnaire were administered to 200 male undergraduates, 50 identified as belonging to each subculture. Especially marked differences were found on aesthetic, economic, and social values, and on cultural sophistication, satisfaction with administration, extracurricular involvement, academic aptitude, and liberalism. Implications of this study for educational programs and administrative practices are listed. (NS)
