This unique study presents the results of a representative sample of 1,065 full time US college students drawn from 4-year colleges in the United States about their evaluation of their success in forming friendships and romantic relationships on campus.  The 67-page reports gives detailed data on how well students think that their colleges have done in fostering student social relations on campus, and how well that they have done individually in forming attachments in college.  A significant body of research points to success in social relations as a key element in college admissions and retention strategy and in overall life success for college students.  This report gives college administrators detailed benchmarking information about how college students experience and evaluate social relations at their college, and their view of how their college fosters, or not, those relations.

Data in the report is presented in the aggregate and also broken out by a broad range of variables including but not limited to:  student age, major or intended major, year of class standing, college grades, SAT/ACT scores, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, public/private school status and many other variables. 

Just a few of the report’s major findings are that:

  • 48.2% of all students considered themselves rather successful or very successful in making friends at college.
  • 27.4% of students age 19 or younger said that they were not really looking for a romantic attachment at college.
  • Freshmen were more likely than seniors to say that their peers are very well integrated socially and have many connections at college.
  • Student grades and student perception of college performance in fostering human relationships on campus were positively correlated with students grades; the higher the grades, the greater the likelihood that students perceive the college social effort as favourable.
