Undergraduate students' values and beliefs evolve during their first three years of college, according to UCLA researchers reporting their findings in "Spirituality in Higher Education: Students' Search for Meaning and Purpose."

Researchers at The Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA found that at the same time that college students' attendance to religious services declines, undergraduates nationwide show significant growth in a wide spectrum of spiritual and ethical considerations during their first three years of college.

The researchers examined data from 14,527 students attending 136 colleges and universities nationwide, surveying students as entering freshmen in the fall of 2004 and again in the late spring of 2007 at the end of their junior year.
