The present study grew out of interviews conducted as part of a 10 year longitudinal study conducted by the State University of New York at Buffalo (SUNY/B). Begun in 1966, this report is one of 50 which have been published and distributed to the university community in order to provide information about students' backgrounds, expectations, perceptions, values, and experiences. It is hoped that this information can then contribute to greater understanding of students by faculty, staff, and other students and can lead to more informed decisions about University policies and programs. The present study explores in some detail the opinions of 240 freshmen entering SUNY/B in the fall of 1972. Topics examined are 1.) family relationships, the feelings and behaviors of parents toward students and of students toward parents; 2.) peer relationship and the importance of trust and confidence; 3.) heterosexual relationships, opinions about sexual intercourse and non-traditional living arrangements; 4.) marriage, divorce, and children; and 5.) the concept of God or some kind of life force. Tables are included with discussion of each of the five areas. (Author/SES)
