Title:Perspectives of Female College Students
Author(s):Feret, Joanna
Subject(s):ENGL 274
gender

Abstract:This project explores female college student perceptions and opinions of their priorities, the university social scene, their daily activities, the current state of the world, and their happiness. The author seeks to answer questions on female students priorities, lifestyles, and their goals in the attempt to come to a consensus of what a typical female student at the university is like. Based on individual interviews, this study concludes that female students currently in college are striving to achieve everything their mothers were not allowed to achieve by pushing for their own limitations.
