The ex-post facto research design was adopted in order to study the aspirations of students. There are totally 411 students enrolled in undergraduate, post – graduate and Ph. D programme during the academic year 2014-15. Out of 411 students, the data were collected from 407 students as the remaining four students viz., two students from UG, one from PG and one from Ph. D. were out of the headquarter for one or the other reason, with the help of well structured questionnaire. The findings of the study revealed that maximum number of students from undergraduate and post – graduate level aspired to develop rural community. With regard to Ph. D. students, equal percentage of the students (29.17 %) aspired to develop rural community, to get social recognition and to develop nation. It was observed that most of the undergraduate and post – graduate student’s economic aspiration per month from a job was Rs 20, 001 – 30, 000 /- where as in case of Ph. D students, most of them aspired for monthly income of Rs 40, 001 – 50, 000/-. Majority of the students had medium level followed by high level of social and economic aspirations and there was a significant difference between the levels of aspirations among the undergraduate, post – graduate and Ph. D. students. With reference to relationship between social aspiration with personal and socio – economic characteristics of the students, it was found that caste and academic performance had positive relationship where as monthly income was negatively related. With regard to economic aspiration of the students, father’s occupation and academic performance had significant positive correlation.
