We investigated the social skills and life satisfaction levels of a sample of 459 Lithuanian university students. Participants were 234 women and 225 men; 260 of them were first-year students and 199 of them were senior-year students. The participants completed measures of social skills and satisfaction with life. The results indicated that the women scored higher than did the men for both social skills and life satisfaction. The scores for social skills and life satisfaction of the senior-year students were found to be significantly higher than those of first-year students. There was a positive correlation between level of social skills and life satisfaction; however, this correlation was weak.
