The questionnaire included personal information questions, leisure involvement scale, and life stress scale. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, independent samples t-test , one-way ANOVA, Scheffe test, and Pearson product-moment correlation. The results are as follows: 1. Northern Taiwan college students feel that involving themselves in leisure activities provide them a feeling of pleasure and gratification and more opportunity of making friends. There is a difference in the level of attraction and social bonding among subjects in terms of gender and types of schools. 2. Northern Taiwan college students prefer the sport and indoor activities as their leisure activities. The level of their leisure participation tends to be low, indicating their weakness in planning leisure activities. 3. The perception of life stress in northern Taiwan college students tends to be low, and life stressors include employment, school work, and self-identity. 4. Differences in stress from school work as well as social bonding exist among students of different years in college, so does stress from both employment and self-identity. Stress of employment, emotion and employment do differ among college students in different types of schools. 5. Leisure involvement of the college students is related to their perception of life stress. Specifically speaking, there is high negative correlation between leisure involvement and self-identity, especially in the factors of social bonding and recognition as well. It had been shown that there are low significant positive correlations among family stress, centrality, and social bonding; low positive correlations between emotion stress and social bonding; low positive correlation between emotion stress and recognition.
