Since 1966, the American Council on Education has sponsored the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP), a longitudinal research program with the major purpose of determining how students are affected by the colleges they attend. To achieve this purpose, annual surveys of first-time, full-time freshmen entering the nation's colleges and universities are conducted, and national normative reports of survey responses published; subsequently, subsamples of the participating freshmen cohorts have been followed up periodically to provide the longitudinal data required to assess various outcomes of the undergraduate experience and, with the original freshman data, to provide a data base of general utility for research and for policy analysis. This report continues in the tradition of documenting the results of the program by presenting normative information based on the responses to a 1972 followup survey of freshmen who participated in the 1968 survey of entering freshmen.
