The purpose of this study was to describe the relationship between social development in college and type of K-12 schooling by comparing the relationships to the level of religiosity, age, gender, and ethnicity for students at Southern Adventist University (SAU). Participants consisted of 42 students at Southern Adventist University (24 male and 18 female). The participants completed the Jordyn Socio-Academic Acclamation Survey (JAAS). Two hypotheses and four research questions were tested in this study. Overall the results of this study were not significant. A weak positive correlation was found between social development and age. These inconclusive findings call for more research on this topic with a larger sample and instrument with established reliability and validity.
