The study investigated the relationship between anxiety level and adaptive behaviour of one hundred and fifty randomly selected fresh students of Covenant University. There were a total of seventy-five (75) males with mean age of 17.59 and SD = 1.54 and seventy-five (75) females with mean age of 17.24 and SD = 1.51 that participated in the study. The findings of the study revealed that there was a negative relationship between fresh male student's level of anxiety and their adaptive behaviour, r = -0.44, P<0.05 and fresh female students level of anxiety and their adaptive behaviour, r = -0.52, P<0.05. The study further showed that there is a significant negative relationship between anxiety level and the adaptive behaviour of fresh students, r = -0.24, P<0.05.
The implications of the findings reiterate that the higher the level of anxiety, the lower the adaptive behaviour students exhibit in new environments and situations.
