Abstract

I. College Situation. Their study previous to the completion of the autobiography consisted of the following topics: 1. Present status of college and university religion. 2. Childhood and adolescent behavior and interests. II. Techniques. 1. The religious autobiography followed an outline. 2. A follow-up check list. 3. Interviews for definiteness on certain aspects of individual development. 4. Thurstone and Chave's test on "Attitude Toward the Church" was given. III. Conclusions. 1. Certain parental, Sunday-Schooi, youth groups, and other factors are valued highly by students for their present religious status. 2. Some students do not support change in attitude toward liberalism as generally assumed. 3. Students of certain religious denominations who maintain their religious faith have not been disturbed by a study of science. Some keep their religion in a special category from science. 4. Few experienced radical conversion. 5. College chapel attendance is considered an adequate substitute for regular Sunday church by some. 6. Little evidence of atheism or agnosticism.
