The Fall 1973 New Student Week Leaders at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
Paciello, Antonio Joseph
This study describes a sample of college students who participated as New Student Week Leaders (NSWL). Vocational interests, as measured by the Strong Vocational Interest Blank for Men (SVIB-M), academic pursuits, campus involvement, and other factors were considered in an attempt to define a NSWL. Eighty-six items were chosen from the SVIB-M to form what was called the NSWL Scale. Results indicated that, as a group, the NSWL's were average in their basic interests, showed a tendency toward "people-related" professions, were in their early twenties, could be characterized as extroverted, were from a wide range of academic majors and were above average scholastically. Study recommendations call for a follow-up study using the new Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory and a rigorous analysis of items in an attempt to create a more formal and valid NSWL Scale.
