Student Subcultures on the Bowdoin Campus.
Brown, Jerry Wayne
The author, using four categories of campus subcultures suggested by Burton Clark and Martin Trow (vocational, academic, collegiate, and nonconformist), investigates the student subcultures as they appear among Bowdoin's Class of 1970. College Student Questionnaires administered to students in September and again in April indicated that there is great mobility among the students in their subculture membership. The least stable of the subcultures proved to be the one designated as vocational, while the most stable was the one designated collegiate. However, over half the students remained categorized within the same subculture in April as they had been in September. Shiftings between September and April tended to validate the ideal types as defined by Trow. Examination of the Clark-Trow subcultures promises to be a useful way for college personnel to learn more about their students. (CJ)
