Extra-Curricular Activities at the University of Minnesota


F. Stuart Chapin

Extra-Curricular Activities at the University of Minnesota was first published in 1929. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

This comprehensive survey, conducted under Professor Chapin’s direction, supplies factual data in a field in which opinion is strong and conflicting. The report is based on the replies of 4,637 students, 408 alumni, and 156 campus organizations.

Of exceptional interest are studies of special groups such as 379 “prominent” students, 112 honor students, 904 officers of campus organizations; of the relation between the intensity of extra-curricular activity and scholastic achievement; of the time actually spent in extra-curricular activity; of the “death rate” of campus organizations; and of the extent to which alumni carry over in community life the activities of their college years.

F. Stuart Chapin was professor of sociology at the University of Minnesota.
