Academic Paper from the year 2016 in the subject Sociology - Knowledge and Information, grade: 70, Moi University (Anthropology), course: Anthropology, language: English, abstract: When a person joins a social organization, it is imperative that they adapt to prosper. Change of values ordinarily occurs through compliance where one entertains and accepts the influence of comrades as they hope for favorable reactions from peers. This study was an examination of behavioral change in response to customary university values and roles) among students of Moi University main campus. The key objective was to examine factors determining behavioral change among students in Moi University. It examined the adaptive behavioral responses of students to university environmental impediments and explored strategies to encourage positive behavior development. The paper argues that students are disposed to adopt negative behavior at the University. The majority of students have inadequate fortitude and emotional intelligence to confront challenges inherent in the university environment. University rules and administration have range bound consequences on the behavior of students. The paper recommends the re-structuring of freshman orientation programs, peer mentorship, increased facilitation of student clubs and extracurricular activities, institutional recognition and awarding of outstanding students, and reconstitution of the university counseling program.
