Welcome to the 15th edition of Perspectives, the Sociology journal of the University of New Hampshire! Students in the Sociology Department work hard every semester to write literary compositions for their classes, and Perspectives is a fantastic way to showcase their work.
We are pleased to bring you our widest selection of work yet. In this edition of Perspectives, we have a range of works that include everything from casual sexual encounters between college students to recidivism rates of community-based programs to differences in sitting posture between males and females.
We would like to thank all of the students who submitted papers for this edition of Perspectives. We would also like to thank Lynn Beaver and Deena Peschke for all of their help with compiling the journals over the years. Finally, we would like to thank Professor Rebecca Glauber for advising us on edition this year's edition of Perspectives.
