The responses of the 81% of the Fall 1968 night students completing a student-characteristics questionnaire are presented in charts and graphs, and compared with responses to similar questionnaires from previous semesters. Increases were found in the numbers of (1) full-time students taking evening classes, (2) single students, (3) students employed in sales, (4) students working less than 15 hours per week and, (5) students planning to do administrative work. Decreases were found in (1) median age of evening students, (2) number of students with children, (3) number of housewives taking classes, (4) number of professional people taking classes, (5) number of students planning to do professional work, and (6) number of students working 40 hours per week. In addition, it was found that (1) students take an average of one or two courses (3-6 units), (2) 60% of the evening students plan a 4-year degree, and (3) most students have graduated from a regular high school, taken an average of 15 units of college work, and are in good academic standing.
