Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the motivations behind student activists at the College of Wooster, as well as the main methods of activism. By using a variety of qualitative and quantitative research methods, I will show that the ultimate goals of politically active students is to both garner more power and improve the abilities of those like them in finding their way to political and social class consciousness. It will also provide historical context for which this activism has developed from in order to better understand the reasoning of contemporary activists and their work.
