The purpose of this thesis was to examine, through reports, articles, essays, and original research, the thoughts, remarks, and activities of a "new breed" of students to determine whether or not they are alienated from economic norms and values in our society, and if they are, to determine whether or not they will pose a threat to future business recruitment quotas for college graduates. The literature consistently supported the view that student discontent is growing and that the students concerned are acting from feelings of alienations which result from the massive, specialized, economic and technological orientation which they find in America's educational and business institutions. It is not so much this orientation per se as it is this orientation at the expense of all other orientations which appears to strike rebellion into the minds of students. [TRUNCATED]
