Abstract

"Non-students" emerge as young persons who are alienated from society and estranged from their families, oriented toward the creative fields, and less interested in a career than their student counterparts. They are not political in the conventional sense, and in informal comments often express the views that political action for social change is futile; yet they turn out in greater frequency than members of the student body for Civil Rights functions and protests against the war in Vietnam. The non-student group is comparable in ability to college students, and in general perceives the functions of colleges to be somewhat similar; yet they are extremely dissatisfied with higher education.
