About This Study

Tailgating, house parties, date parties, bars…there are seemingly endless options when it comes to going out at a school like the University of Michigan. Every experience is different; some nights you’ll remember forever, and others you’ll think would’ve been better spent studying.

The purpose of the Social Experiences Across Time Study (SEATS) is to better understand how female undergraduates navigate University of Michigan social life and how they and their social habits change throughout college. We are especially interested in the social and sexual norms students encounter when they go out and how they view these norms. We thank our participants for sharing with us their perspectives throughout the study!

On the SEATS website, you’ll find answers to commonly asked questions, information about the research team, study newsletters, and contact information.
