Comparison of Freshmen Attitudes on Controversial Issues.
Fidler, Paul P.; Still, Julianne
During the summer and fall orientation of 1972, a questionnaire prepared by the American Council on Education was administered to incoming freshmen at the University of South Carolina (USC) and 527 other institutions of higher education. The resulting summary data on entering freshmen included information on the entering freshmen at USC and weighted normative data based on questionnaire results from the 42 participating universities. The report focuses on five controversial issues: legalization of marijuana, increased earning power resulting from a college education, the role of the Federal government in protecting the consumer, abolishment of capital punishment, and equal salary and opportunity rights for men and women. The first part of the report compares USC student responses to the national university norms. The second section compares the responses of USC males and females. Conclusions are indicated.
