Abstract/Description

This project will examine the impact that several factors have on a student’s involvement in extracurricular activities. Data will be collected from Murray State students through a survey measuring levels of: involvement in extracurricular activities, levels of social anxiety, levels of general anxiety, perceived academic control, religiosity, and the amount of other obligations students have outside of school. The aim of this research is to help understand how college students with levels of social anxiety navigate life on campus. A better understanding how social anxiety affects students’ engagement in college organizations and activities can aid in finding ways to promote involvement for students who have difficulties becoming involved with groups. Methodology and preliminary findings will be discussed, as data collection is ongoing.
