A Comparison of Perception of the University Environment by Undergraduate Married and Single Male Students.
Riley, William L.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether there are differences in perceptions of the university environment between married male students and single male students. Seventy-five upperclass male students were selected at random from the university's single on-campus, single off-campus, and married off-campus undergraduate population. All of the married undergraduate male students (N-53) on-campus were selected for the study. Over 72 percent of the students selected responded. The College and University Environment Scales (CUES) was the instrument used. The results were reported in 5 dimensions describing the environment: (1) practicality, (2) awareness, (3) propriety, (4) community, and (5) scholarship. The results suggested that the students in the 4 groups measured perceived the university environment similarly. Marriage or the student's place of residence did not seem to have a differential effect on his perception. (AF)
