Abstract/Description

Each person struggles with stress for different reasons; some financial, academic and social reasons. The stress levels may vary from person to person based on age, gender and experience. The purpose of this study is to measure the levels of stress among undergraduate college students and how they vary between traditional college students and non-traditional college students. The traditional students are considered high school graduates immediately attending college with no break and the non-traditional students are considered all other students with any length of break between high school and college. Specifically, the study will measure the levels of stress based on social, financial and academic variables from 70 participants solicited from a small liberal arts university in Northern California. The participants will receive an email containing a link to a survey that includes the College Stress Inventory (CSI). The participants will be asked 21 questions that measure the levels of stress relating to social, financial and academic variables. In addition to these questions, common demographics will be asked. This study will further current research to extend findings concerning levels of stress among college students. It is hypothesized that 1) the levels of stress among traditional college students is the same for adult college learners, 2) the levels of stress are higher for men than for women, and 3) the levels of stress will be higher for junior college level students than for senior college level students.
