FOLLOW-UP OF 1965 FRESHMEN WHO DID NOT RETURN FOR FALL SEMESTER, 1966.
SENSOR, PHYLLIS
STUDENTS WHO DID NOT RETURN FOR A SECOND YEAR WERE CODED ACCORDING TO THE LENGTH OF TIME SPENT IN THE COLLEGE AND THEIR RECORDS CHECKED FOR THE NUMBER OF UNITS ATTEMPTED AND THE NUMBER OF UNITS AND GRADE POINTS EARNED. A 1-PAGE QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO 967 SUCH STUDENTS AND THE RESULTS FROM THE 222 REPLIES WERE ANALYZED. A SEPARATE CHECK WAS MADE ON THOSE ENROLLED IN 1-YEAR COSMETOLOGY, LICENSED VOCATIONAL NURSING, AND PEACE OFFICER PROGRAMS. TABLES WERE PREPARED TO SUMMARIZE ANSWERS TO THE FOLLOING QUESTIONS--(1) WHAT IS YOUR PRESENT ACTIVITY. (2) WHEN DID YOU LEAVE THE COLLEGE. (3) WERE YOU EMPLOYED WHILE ATTENDING COLLEGE. (4) IF SO, HOW MANY HOURS PER WEEK. (5) IN WHAT WAY COULD THE COLLEGE HAVE HELPED YOU MORE. (6) HOW MUCH HAS YOUR COLLEGE TRAINING HELPED YOU IN YOUR PRESENT JOB. (7) WHAT OTHER COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS CAN YOU OFFER. THE FINDINGS, WHILE SHOWING NO SERIOUS DEFICIENCIES IN THE COLLEGE'S FUNCTIONS, DID INDICATE AREAS FOR FURTHER STUDY--(1) HOW TO INCREASE COUNSELING EFFECTIVENESS FOR FRESHMEN, (2) A SIMILAR STUDY OF 1966 FRESHMEN, EXCLUDING THE SPECIAL TRAINING ENROLLEES, (3) A SEPARATE FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF VOCATIONAL STUDENTS, AND (4) A PROFILE OF STUDENTS WHO DROP CLASSES.
