A STUDY OF UNIVERSITY OF BUFFALO EVENING COLLEGE STUDENTS RECEIVING THE BACHELOR'S DEGREE, 1952-1958 (ED.D. THESIS).
ZEMAN, SANFORD J.
THE SUBJECTS FOR THIS STUDY WERE THE 257 EVENING COLLEGE GRADUATES (THOSE STUDENTS WHO COMPLETED AT LEAST HALF OF THE BACHELOR'S DEGREE PROGRAM THROUGH THE EVENING DIVISION OF THE UNIVERSITY) WHO RECEIVED THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE, THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION, OR THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ENGINEERING DEGREE FROM THE UNIVERITY OF BUFFALO BETWEEN FEBRUARY 1952 AND JUNE 1958. DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM STUDENT RECORDS AND FROM STRUCTURED, PERSONAL INTERVIEWS CONDUCTED WITH A 15.6 PERCENT RANDOM SAMPLE OF THE TOTAL POPULATION. AREAS ANALYZED WERE PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS, PRECOLLEGE PREPARATION, COLLEGE CAREER, EMPLOYMENT FACTORS, FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, POSSIBLE MOTIVATING FACTORS, AND STUDENT OPINIONS CONCERNING SUCH ITEMS RELATED TO EVENING COLLEGE STUDY AS EFFECT OF MARRIAGE, REASONS FOR ATTENDING EVENING COLLEGE RATHER THAN DAY SCHOOL, EFFECT OF ADVISEMENT, EFFECT OF TEACHERS, SPECIAL PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED, AND REASONS FOR SUCCESS IN EARNING THE DEGREE. IMPLICATIONS WERE DRAWN FOR FURTHER RESEARCH RELATED TO ADMINISTRATIVE PRACTICES IN THE EVENING COLLEGE, MOTIVATIONAL FACTORS OF ADULT STUDENTS, AND STUDENT-TEACHER RELATIONSHIPS.
