  • Adetola O. Adeyemi


This study investigated collaborative learning indicators as predictors of social well-being among female undergraduates in the University of Abuja, Abuja, Nigeria. The study employed correlational research design. A sample of 250 female students was randomly selected within Faculty of Education. Three reliable instruments were used for data collection. Three research questions were generated and tested with Pearson’s’ Product Moment Correlation and multiple linear regression analysis at 0.05 level of significance. The research discovered that there was a significant relationship between social acceptance, information-seeking behaviour and social well-being. At prediction level, it was discovered that social acceptance and information-seeking behaviour jointly predicted 30% increase in female undergraduates’ social well-being. Social acceptance was the strongest predictor of female students’ social well-being, followed by information-seeking behaviour. The research recommended that students should always make effort to consult lecturers or the library for any information needed rather than keeping quiet. The counselling units in various universities need to improve on their campaigns within the school premises so that students will be aware that they can help in meeting their information needs. Students’ affairs office is to intensify their orientation programmes so that fresh female undergraduates will develop the mind-set of social acceptance.

Key Words: Social acceptance, Information-seeking behaviour, Social well-being, Female undergraduates.
