  1. Information concerning student sexual mentality, morality, and practice only after he reveals his true intentions and identity as a professor.
  2. Prior to Moffatt's confession of his true anthropologist identity, students are unlikely to discuss racial discrimination openly with Moffatt within several days of meeting him.
  3. Revealing his identity as an anthropologist dressed as a dissembled student allowed for students to confide in Moffatt.
  4. Disguising himself as a freshman at Rutgers University to attain a better understanding of the workings of the student body proved unsuccessful when students considered Moffatt peculiarly older and therefore foreign.

Michael Moffatt, author of Coming of Age in New Jersey, performs a study at Rutgers University during the mid 1980's. In hopes of gaining a better understanding of the student culture, Moffatt conceals his anthropologist identity by resembling - in appearance and in manner - a freshman student at Rutgers University. Moffatt's first unsuccessful attempt at gaining valid insight into the student culture while dressed as a student instigates his second attempt when he reveals his true identity as an anthropologist. After admitting to the student body of his true intentions, Moffatt is able to attain accurate information concerning sexuality, discrimination, and student relationships during college life.
