The purpose of this study is to analyze the motivation and engagement of undergraduate students who become active in and continue involvement in nonacademic, non-employment related activities on the campus of Salisbury University. The current study compares these results with the participants' responses to the Post Childhood Opportunities for Role Taking (PC-ORT) measurement, as well as with demographics such as academic year/classification. Results revealed that PC-ORT scores were positively related to number of semesters completed at Salisbury University. Engagement was also positively related to number of semesters at Salisbury University. Of the three levels of involvement analyzed, none were related to number of semesters at Salisbury. Six broad motivations for involvement were identified. All 6 returned a variety of significant relationships with other variables such as engagement, PC-ORT scoring, and number of semesters completed.
