A STUDY OF THE MATURE WOMEN STUDENTS ATTENDING DAY CLASSES AT RIVERSIDE CITY COLLEGE DURING THE SPRING SEMESTER, 1964.
SENSOR, PHYLLIS
THIS STUDY DEFINED A MATURE WOMAN AS BEING 25 YEARS OLD OR OLDER OR MARRIED. DATA WERE COLLECTED ON 225 MATURE WOMEN ATTENDING RIVERSIDE CITY COLLEGE DURING THE 1964 SPRING SEMESTER, INCLUDING DATE OF BIRTH, MARITAL STATUS, ACADEMIC SUCCESS, TEST SCORES, GRADE POINT AVERAGE, UNITS OF STUDY, MAJOR, AND SCHOOLS OF TRANSFER. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO A RANDOM SAMPLE OF THIS GROUP. THE RESPONSES INDICATE THAT THE BASIC PROBLEM ENCOUNTERED BY THESE WOMEN WAS LACK OF TIME FOR BOTH HOME DUTIES AND STUDY. THEIR GRADE POINT AVERAGE WAS 0.5 HIGHER THAN THAT OF THE TOTAL STUDENT BODY, AND MOST INDICATED NO FINANCIAL PROBLEM. MORE CLASSES FROM 10 AM TO 2 PM, MORE 1 1/2-HOUR CLASSES, AND A SCHOOL NURSERY WOULD ALLEVIATE MANY OF THE TIME PROBLEMS. (HS)
