WILLIAMS, CYRUS PAUL
IN A 4-YEAR STUDY OF 598 FRESHMEN WHO ENTERED WHARTON COUNTY JUNIOR COLLEGE, TEXAS, IN FALL 1961, THE AUTHOR USED A QUESTIONNAIRE, PLUS HIGH SCHOOL, JUNIOR COLLEGE, AND SENIOR COLLEGE RECORDS TO IDENTIFY THE SOURCES AND ABILITIES OF THE STUDENTS, TO TRACE THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS THROUGH JUNIOR AND SENIOR COLLEGE, TO DISCOVER THEIR OPINIONS OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, AND TO IDENTIFY THEIR PROBLEMS OF ADJUSTMENT (ACADEMIC, PERSONAL, OR VOCATIONAL). THE DATA INDICATED THAT, WHILE THE JUNIOR COLLEGE WAS HELD IN HIGH ESTEEM BY MOST OF THE RESPONDING 291 STUDENTS, IT SHOULD TAKE STEPS TO (1) INCREASE THE PROBABILITY OF STUDENT SUCCESS, (2) ENCOURAGE COMPLETION OF JUNIOR COLLEGE BEFORE TRANSFER, (3) INSTILL BETTER STUDY HABITS WITH A RESULTANT RAISING OF ASPIRATIONS, (4) FIND A WAY TO MAINTAIN RELATIONSHIPS WITH THOSE WHO DID NOT REPLY TO THE QUESTIONNAIRE, (5) IDENTIFY POTENTIAL DROPOUTS EARLIER AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO STAY IN COLLEGE, (6) EXPERIMENT WITH SCHOLASTIC PROBATION TO PREPARE THE STUDENTS FOR SENIOR COLLEGE STANDARDS, AND (7) IMPROVE GUIDANCE SERVICES TO HELP STUDENTS FIND MORE SATISFACTORY JOBS.
