The present study surveys changes in characteristics of students entering the University of Minnesota from 1963 to 1973. Data are presented for selected achievement and biographical variables. For each variable, data are presented for the total sample, for each sex and each college of entrance at the University. The academic characteristics of freshmen have changed only slightly over the 10-year period. Parents of University freshmen in 1973 had more education and were of higher occupational status than parents of freshmen in 1963. Students' plans for financing the costs of a college education have also changed. (Author)
