The purpose of this study was to investigate the extend of anti-intellectual attitudes when comparing the difference between students and student-athletes using an accurate and consistent scale. Scores on the student anti-intellectualism survey revealed no significant difference between students and student-athletes. The extend of this phenomenon was also measured over various strata of university student population using survey data. The findings were at odds with respect to some previous research and in strong agreement with others.
