Dunn, Patrick P.
Our study, "Affects of the WPI Society on Students Over Time," was conducted to determine the differences in the effects on students at a male-dominated engineering school as compared to non-male dominated liberal arts school, Assumption College. Some of the major observable results of the WPI society on students as compared to Assumption College are less study time per day, higher sense of comfort with professors, more females pressured into sexual relations, more students attending fraternity parties, fewer female to female social and academic interactions, and more males having negative attitudes towards fellow female students. This study will make recommendations in an attempt to rectify the negative issues that have arisen due to the WPI society.
