The American Freshman from the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA

A record number of incoming freshmen expect to participate in volunteer and community service, but how to pay for college tops their concerns.

The 2009 freshman norms are based on the responses of 219,864 first-time, full-time, first-year students at 297 of the nation’s baccalaureate colleges and universities. The data have been statistically adjusted to reflect the responses of the 1.4 million first-time, full-time students entering four-year colleges and universities as firstyear students in 2009.
