The Class of 2012

Contributor: Stew Friedman

This post is an invitation to the members of the Wharton Undergraduate Class of 2012 who participated in our study and to anyone else who might be interested in our findings and what they mean for individuals, organizations, and society. Welcome, and please comment.

In our extensive survey of the Class of 2012, we asked questions about career prospects and progression, personal values, family, views on the relationship of work with the rest of life, health and religion, civic engagement, and Wharton. We also asked these questions of the Undergraduate Class of 1992 20 years ago and then again in 2012.

If you are a member of the Class of 2012 and participated in our study you should have received via email a copy of your report by now, with your classmates’ responses to all the questions. We also included what the Undergraduate Class of 1992 said in response to the same questions, back in 1992 and again in 2012. We welcome your comments in response to these questions below or on other reactions and ideas you might have.

  • To what did you react most strongly in this report?
  • What was most surprising to you?
  • What would you like to say to your classmates about what you read?

If you aren’t a member of the Class of 2012, here are two links with information from this study:
