Junior College Transfer Students' Needs and Evaluation of Student Personnel Services.
Fulco, Jean
Junior college transfer students enrolled at the University of Missouri in the fall of 1967 and also at the time of the study (1968) were asked to express their perceived needs in eight areas of student personnel services and to rate the adequacy of the University in meeting these needs. A random sample of 45 men and 45 women from the University residence halls answered a 40-item questionnaire on (1) admissions and orientation, (2) counseling, (3) curriculum and referral, (4) financial aid and employment, (5) housing and food service, (6) health service, (7) student activities, and (8) discipline and conduct. Both men and women wanted the most help with admissions and orientation, and the least with counseling. The men's and women's needs differed for admissions and orientation, student activities, and discipline and conduct. Most students rated the services as adequate, although some were uncertain about the availability of such services as information on student discipline and conduct. In general, the study showed that faculty advisors were unsatisfactory, students were unaware of certain services, and the orientation programs were unsatisfactory insofar as the transfers and freshmen were grouped together.
