Journal of Counseling and Development, v70 n1 p189-93 Sep-Oct 1991
Measured attitudes of 293 freshmen college students using revised Situational Attitude Scale (SAS) Student-Athlete. Findings suggest that freshman students perceive student athletes negatively in situations dealing with academic competence. Student athletes should be educated to "isms" they may be facing from peers on campus and in classroom. (Author/NB)
