During the spring, 1995, Western students who had taken the fall, 1991, Freshman Survey (technically, the Cooperative Institutional Research Program Student Information Survey) were sent a follow-up questionnaire, the College Student Survey (CSS)--referred to in this report as the Senior Survey. (As with the CIRP Survey, the CSS instrument was developed by the Higher Education Research Institute. a part of the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Los Angeles.) The Senior Survey was designed both to parallel the Freshman Survey, and to supply elemental information on college students after they have attended an institution of higher education for a predetermined period of time, usually two or four years after entering. The administration of the Senior Survey in the spring of 1995 was the second time the survey had been administered at Western; it was first used in the spring of 1993, when students who had taken the Freshman Survey in 1989 were surveyed. When findings warrant it, comparisons between the 1993 and 1995 cohorts will be made, though overall the differences were rather minimal.
