CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Nearly fifty years ago Harold Hand, in his book Campus Activities, expressed the belief that the influence of the

college living environment out-ranked any and every other

factor

involved

in

college

learning.

Personnel

workers

have

continually echoed Dr. Hand's sentiment that where and how

a college student lives largely determines his physical and

mental health, the attitudes that guide his actions, and indeed

the very quality of education he receives (Reich, 1964).

Since Colonial Times, on campus housing has been a very viable and influential living atmosphere for the college

student.

Such

accommodations

have

undergone

many

changes

throughout the years but the impact it has had on the college

student

has

remained

unscathed.

This

type

of

housing

has

been

most commonly referred to as a dormitory and in recent years residence hall (Powell, Plyer, Dickson, McClellan, 1969).

Although many elements have combined to make on campus

housing such a powerful force in cOllege student's life;

perhaps the most dominant factor of influence has been the

adult in charge of individual who has hall to facilitate

the had the

living to set growth

environment.

It is this

the

climate

of

the

residence

of

the

students

who

have

dwelled

within.

This

very

instrumental

individual

has

had

many

titles
