Abstract

Ragging in the Sri Lankan context has become an annual 'tradition' within all the conventional universities. Bad experiences and the voice of the public led towards introducing legal action against ragging but it still prevails as a major problem.

The research attempts to study the views of female undergraduates regarding ragging, evaluate the gravity of ragging they face and their opinion on the prevalence of ragging. A sample of 423 students was selected for the study, with a 93 per cent response rate. The study concludes it is important to promote   the positive impacts of ragging while taking action to curb the negative impacts.

Key Words: Ragging; Sri Lankan Universities; Female students
