This study aims to measure the Meaningfulness of University Life and to clarify its features, and to consider the relations between the Meaningfulness of University Life and Work Value and Career Consciousness. Firstly, I measured the Meaningfulness of University Life based on a scale measure of calling, whose definition was clarified by Dobrow & Tosti-Kharas (2011). In this study, with reference to the scale measure of calling, I created a 9-item scale measure of Meaningfulness to measure the 3 aspects of studying, extracurricular activities (various kinds of clubs) and part-time jobs. After comparing the average of Meaningfulness of the 3 aspects, one aspect which is a meaning of University Life (studying) is significantly lower than the other 2 aspects. Secondly, I clarify the relation between the Meaningfulness of University Life, Work Value and the Career Action Vision Test (CAVT). As a result of this analysis, the Meaningfulness of studying showed a significant correlation with Work Value and CAVT.
