Occuptaional Views and Decisions of Missouri College of Agriculture Students: A Panel Study of 1964 Freshmen--1968 Seniors.
Lionberger, Herbert F.; Heifner, Betty S.
This report presents the results of a study made to discover what changes are made in students' occupational plans and attitudes after attending 4 years of agricultural school. The Missouri College of Agriculture was the site of the study, and the 1964 freshman class was the focus. Questionnaires regarding occupational choice and socioeconomic background were distributed to the students upon entering college, and comparisons are made in the report with the same students 4 years later. Of the 255 students polled in 1964, only 145 were left at the college in 1968. A comparative study is made of those who stayed and those who left with regard to differential background experiences and inclinations. (HS)
