College Student Stress and Satisfaction with Life
Weinstein, Lawrence; Laverghetta, Antonio
College Student Journal, v43 n4 p1161-1162 Dec 2009
The following study was performed to determine if general life satisfaction is negatively correlated with college student stress. We administered the satisfaction with life scale (Diener et al., 1985), college student stress scale (Feldt, 2008) and a brief demographics survey to a sample of college students at a regional southwestern university in Oklahoma. We found that scores on the satisfaction with life scale were significantly negatively correlated with scores on the college student stress scale, suggesting that overall life satisfaction in college students is adversely influenced by college stress. We also found in our sample that females reported higher college stress scores than the males did.
