The purpose of this endeavor is to determine whether or not significant differences can be found between the backgrounds and opinions of ministerial students and non-ministerial students who attend Ouachita University.
First of all, a survey was devised that would attempt to attain information concerning the backgrounds (family and church) and opinions of the two groups. A copy of the questionnaire used in this survey can be found in Section II of this presentation.
There were 35 ministerial students in the sample, and 121 non-ministerial students. The number of ministerial students on campus is approximately 75.
