dc.description.abstract The research was designed to determine the outdoor recreation: activities of 73311 State University students and the reasons influencing their selection. Differences in outdoor recreation activities and the reasons for their selection between male and female students, among freshmen, sophomore, junior, senior, and graduate students, and according to sex and year of attendance in college were investigated.The sample for the study consisted of 625 Ball State University students living in on-campus housing during the Winter Quarter 1976-77. These students were selected using a proportional random sampling design method. An. outdoor recreation activities questionnaire was mailed to each of the students selected and 69% were returned.The findings of the survey revealed that swimming was the favorite outdoor recreation activity for 85% of Ball State University students. The reason for selecting outdoor recreation activities having the most influence for 87% of Ball State University students was "for satisfaction and enjoyment."Data from the study revealed that outdoor recreation activities selected by Ball State University students are those that require a minimum amount of money, require few special skills, require little time, and require few special facilities for participation.
