Posted September 10, 2018 08:09:56 We’ve all heard the saying “you can’t go camping without a backpack.”

We’ve also all heard that backpackers have a bad reputation.

However, a new study from the University of Michigan and the University at Buffalo suggests the opposite is true.

According to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health, backpackers are more likely to have a positive attitude and engage in more positive social interaction than other students.

The researchers also found that backpacker students were more likely than their peers to report having a high school degree or equivalent.

“When you look at the data, there is no other group of people who have that reputation,” says Jennifer Doudna, associate professor of psychology at the University and one of the study’s authors.

“The reputation of backpackers is just a bit of the surface, and it’s actually really important to understand that.”

What the research shows: The study was based on a survey of 2,000 students from the Michigan State University and the Buffalo Niagara University.

It looked at how students rated their feelings of isolation, their social capital, and their health and wellbeing.

The participants were then asked to complete a questionnaire on how often they felt isolated, whether they had positive or negative relationships with their classmates, and whether they felt that their social and academic skills were lacking.

The results showed that while students rated isolation as a negative trait, students who said they had a high level of social capital also reported being less likely to report feeling isolated.

The authors also found backpackers had higher levels of positive social capital than other groups of students.

More than three-quarters of the students who completed the survey said they were active, engaged, and well-liked by classmates.

A full 87% of the backpackers said they have a high enough social capital to have their own personal Facebook page, and almost half reported having at least one social media friend.

While the backpacker experience may be viewed as isolating, Doudnas believes this is due to a number of factors.

“A lot of people think about backpackers as being isolated, but we actually think about them as having a very positive, positive relationship with their peers,” she says.
