This survey, developed with the underlying philosophy of uncovering basic attitudes of students, reached approximately 11,000 students representing diverse interests, ages, programs, geographic locales, and socioeconomic backgrounds from 188 institutions. Of these 11,000 students, approximately 25 percent responded to the survey instrument and another 3 percent participated in the 15 regional interviews. Statistical data are presented for student characteristics, need for and desirability of field of study, employability of curriculum by field of study, effectiveness of internship programs, efficiency and effectiveness of resources, student responsibility, student aid, desirability of opportunity by level of educational attainment, adequacy of secondary education, adequacy of present resources, appropriateness of parental support, appropriate primary support, satisfaction by institutional type, and desirability of student loans. Various other areas are covered in addition to a summarization of observations concerning student attitudes, educational purposes, and national objectives. (MJM)
