Version V1

This study surveyed a sample of students from the law, political science, architecture, and engineering departments at the University of Milan, Italy. Respondents were asked about their high school educational and formative experiences and their performance at the university, including grades and evaluations of examination procedures and professors. The students' reasons for choosing their field of study and their satisfaction with it, as well as their families' satisfaction, were also assessed. Questions elicited evaluations of the function of the university in society and of student protests and their consequences. Political and educational aspects of the University Reform Bill and the role of student political organizations were also investigated. Respondents were asked to evaluate student representatives and their interest in the problems of the university. Other questions probed the respondents' perspectives of political events in Italy and elsewhere and the political interests and orientations of their families. In addition, respondents were asked to give reasons for their choice of a specific professional field and to talk about their views on their future families, including issues such as divorce, family planning, and the role of women. Information was also collected on the associations respondents belonged to, their friends and leisure activities, and their parents' families. Demographic data include sex and year of study.
