The focus of this paper is on college students and their attitudes, values, and activities, including altruism and volunteering. College students from a southwestern liberal arts university were sampled. We found that the students repeatedly stressed traditional, moralistic, and altruistic attitudes and values. We found relatively high levels of volunteering. We also found that students placed significant limits on their volunteering.
