A STUDY OF COLLEGE FRESHMEN--TWENTY-FIVE YEARS LATER.
CAMPBELL, DAVID P.
A FOLLOWUP STUDY ON THE PROFILES OF INDIVIDUALS 25 YEARS AFTER THEY ENTERED COLLEGE IS REPORTED. APPROXIMATELY 650 INDIVIDUALS RESPONDED TO QUESTIONNAIRES. DATA WERE COLLECTED AND COLLATED, AND DESCRIPTIONS OF VARIOUS SUBGROUPS AND COMPARISONS BETWEEN THE GROUPS MADE OF SCHOLASTIC ABILITIES, ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT, INTERESTS AND ADJUSTMENTS, EMPLOYMENT, LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES, AND OVERALL ATTITUDES. IT WAS FOUND THAT TWO-THIRDS OF THE RESPONDENTS WERE GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE, 90 PERCENT WERE MARRIED AND AVERAGED 2 TO 3 CHILDREN, AND, AS A GROUP, WERE SUCCESSFUL. AN OVERWHELMING MAJORITY EXPRESSED SATISFACTION WITH THEIR JOB AND LIFE EXPERIENCES, AND EXPRESSED CONSERVATIVE VALUES 2 TO 1. (RS)
