Abstract

This project involves examining the basic tenents and beliefs of contemporary Catholic sexual teaching and it is applied on university campuses experiencing the hook-up culture. The goal of this project is to propose the conjecture that there is a fundamental difference between the effect of the hook-up culture among private Catholic student bodies and secular public student bodies. This has been done by a through examination of Catholic social teaching on sexuality and examining how wide spread the effects of Catholic social teachings are amongst students. Data regarding student opinions and thoughts on sexuality was also examined to develop a clear picture of sexuality on different types of college campuses. This examination revealed that there is a definitive difference between how sexuality and the hook-up culture is viewed on Catholic and secular campuses. This research highlights the limited but still important effect that Catholic social teaching has on amongst Catholic university students.
