Abstract:
The primary purpose of this study is to examine whether hope serves as a protective factor in resiliency. Questionnaires were administered to 112 college students to assess their life experiences, levels of self-esteem, self-confidence, and hope. Self-report levels of self-esteem, self-confidence, and amount of stress were used to differentiate resilient from non-resilient students. Results indicated that the college student sample experienced stress with primary stressor being Relationship. No significant difference in stress was found between male and female students. Hispanic students reported significantly higher levels of stress on academics and work than other ethnic groups. Students with GPA's < 3.0 reported significantly higher levels of stress and more positive Relationship experiences than students with GPA's > 3.0. Finally, resilient students reported significantly greater degree of hope than non-resilient students. The sources of hope for resilient students seem to come from within, with a determination to achieve goals.
