Characteristics of Freshmen Entering CRC-Member Colleges During the Period 1964-1970: A Summary of Survey Data.
Wilson, Kenneth M.
This report summarizes selected results of a survey of young women entering eight liberal arts colleges between 1964 and 1970. The survey questionnaire, "College Student Questionnaire", solicited information regarding their educational and vocational plans and preferences; career goals; backgrounds; study habits, academic interests; opinions on social political, and economic issues; and attitudes. The data generated by recurring freshman surveys during a period of dramatic social, economic, and educational change (1964-1970), revealed significant changes in each of the areas mentioned above, as well as differences among the colleges in the characteristics of entering students.
