HighPrep School Background May Determine
Student's Success Or Failure In University
SKCON'D OF A SERIES ON UNC
By HOWARD WHEELER
Among the most difficult topics
to objectively discuss are fraterni
ties, sororities, and prep schools. It
is practically impossible for a uni
veisity student to speak or write of
the.e without certain personal bias,
Whether prep .schools make bet
ter college students or not is de
batable. Vance Packard cites in
THE STATUS SEEKERS that Char
les C. McArthur, in his study of the
differences between upperclass boys
coming from private .schools and
boys from the middle classes com-
so perhaps it would be best today i ing from public high schools, found
to simply state a lew facts about I that
each and lei it go at that.
What determines to a large ex
tent the success or failure of a stu
dent jn the University Ls his high or
prep school background, and the
social clique of which he becomes
part once in college. Since selec
tion of college social claques pri
marily result from previous high or
prep school background, it would
be best to consider the student's
Of all freshmen at Chapel I fill,

cent graduated from North Carolina
Statistics are quite different in
regards to out of state residents.
for only 56 percent out of state
freshmen graduated from public
high school while 44 percent grad
uated from private schools. The
reason so few North Carolinians are
graduates of private schools is due
to there being only two prep
schooL in the state.
1) "The public school boys, re
flecting the dominant success cul
ture of America, saw their father
as a figure they were expected to
surpass occupationally. These boys
were oriented to doing, to accom
plishing. To them, the significant
time dimension is the future. They
sec college as a road to success."
And that, 2) "The upper-class,
private school boys, in contrast,
were oriented to being rather than
doing. They expected to be evalu
ated for what they really were. And
in terms of time, the important
dimension was the past.
"Such a boy accepts his father
as a model who probably was so
successful that there is no point in
striving to surpass him. Going to
college to this boy offers the oppor
tunity to live out his predetermined
life role of a gentleman.
"And his collegiate interests cen
ter around the club and around
congenial friends he "will find there.
As for collegiate study, his goal in
marks in likely to be "the gentle
man C," which shows he Is above
striving. He knows that for him,
college grades have little relevance
to his future career."

One can fairly ask here if North
Carolina high schools appear to be
giving the average Carolinian an
adequate college preparation. This
is, of course a touchy question and
is one that can be answered only
Some of the high schools in the
state rank among the best in the
country, while others are not at all
so fortunate. Regardless, there are

three high schools in the South
which has membership on the Col
lege Entrance Exam Boards.
Needless to say, the path students
take after entering the University
is probably a more determining
factor in the student's success or
failure than his pre-college back
ground. (What first comes to the
mind here are social fraternities,
and on this issue there are two bit
There are the fraternity mem
bers who swear to high heaven that
fraternity members have better
academic standing than non-fraternity
members and that the fratei
nity furthers the student not oiiiy
socially but academically.
Then there are the stolid crusad
ers against fraternities who mam
tain that fraternity members are
a bunch of block-head conformists
who are flunking out en masse.
Either of these claims is simply
On the basis of the 1958 59 qual
ity point system, the alMraternity
scholastic average at UNC (for
Spring, 1959) is 1.1651 to the all
men's average of 1.1682. Although
this tells us that the all-men's aver
age is .slightly better than the all
fraternity average, the person vho
would use such a slim margin as
a baltle cry against fraternities is
in reality splitting hairs.
It must aLso be considered that
the all-men's average was attained
by sampling method and is not as
precise as the fraternity average.
Sororities are a different matter
altogether. With the risk of giving
a lot of Greek letter girls tho swell
head, we cannot deny that the sor
ority with the lowest academic
average (1.4470) is nonetheless aca
demically superior to the frater
nity with the highest academic
Also the all-sorority average of
11.5985 is well superior to the all
men's average of 1.1682. Of course
the sorority girls are out of the
general college and have been
primed by two years at WC or some
other college. These scholastic aver
ages were computed for the Spring
semester of 1959.
It should also be pointed out that
only 25 percent of the men and
women students belong to social
fraternities and sororities and that
the success or failure of the large
majority of the students depends on
their intellectual capacities, their
