ABSTRACT

The study examined the influence of youth culture on the social orientation of adolescents in University of Lagos, Akoka Lagos.

The descriptive research survey was employed to assess the opinions of the respondents. A total of 120 (one hundred and twenty) students were sampled for this study.

Four null hypotheses were formulated and tested using the t-test and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) at 0.05 level of significance.

At the end of the analyses, the following conclusions were reached: Hypothesis one found that there is a significant influence of perceived youth culture on social orientation of undergraduates at University of Lagos; Hypothesis two found that there is a significant gender impact in youth culture on social orientation of adolescents in schools; Hypothesis three found that there is a significant class difference in perceived youth cultural impact on social orientation of undergraduates and finally finally, hypothesis four found that there is a significant effect of perceived youth cultural impact on social orientation of undergraduates living in the hostels and those who do not live in the hostels.

Based on the conclusions arrived at, at the end of this study, the following recommendations were made as possible solutions to the problem of perceived low social orientation of youths in the school and outside of it:

(1)         Youths should exhibit proper attitude to their cultural heritage. They should also understand that for them to be able to uphold good or higher social orientation, they would do well to possess high or healthy self-concept which is a positive way of how an individual sees himself/herself. It is recommended that youths should possess high and healthy self-concept in order to do well in life.

(2)         Both male and female students should inculcate their cultural values and norms that are required in the society. They should not try to uphold those norms and values that are inimical to the cultural heritage in a normal and decent society. Male and female youths of the society should know that they are the leaders of tomorrow, and as such, they should keep to the cultures and behaviours that are accepted in their community, rather than behaving unseemingly and irrationally, which is not a healthy attribute of a good society. Male and female youths should socialize correctly, doing it with decorum and maturity. They should shun acts and behaviours that can make them to be seen as delinquents and indisciplined in the society.
