Statement of the Problem. Because mazy students enter college with little or no previous knowledge of what areas of study they wish to pursue in preparation for a life's career, it becomes increasingly important that guidance programs and services be provided by the high schools before the student graduates. Individual and situational problems arise, it seems, from the fact that guidance programs are inadequate or totally absent from mazy school curriculums. This may result in students becoming maladjusted and left without a sense of direction or a life goal towards which to work. The problem, therefore, becomes that of providing guidance service to high school students which equips them with basic knowledge of the requirements and qualifications needed to embark upon their chosen vocation.
The purpose of this study is to gather and compile information concerning the types of vocational guidance services received in high school ty forty-five college freshmen majoring in agriculture at Prairie View Agricultural and Mechanical College.
In order to achieve this purpose the writer feels that the following questions should be answered:
1. To what extent were the students, while in high school exposed to the services of a vocational guidance counselor?
2. Did these students, while in high school, know the curriculum for a major in agriculture at Prairie View Agricultural and Mechanical College?
3. Were tests given these students to aid them in determining the field of agriculture as a major?
