The Students: A Study of Student Characteristics, Fall-1969.
Grieve, Donald E.; Purser, Timothy D.
This report presents a statistical description of the 1969-70 Cuyahoga Community College (CCC), Ohio, student body in terms of enrollment data, academic potential, goals and aspirations, student personnel needs, non-academic information, and demographic data. Selected elements of the description reveal that, of 15,423 students registered for the fall 1969 session (10,103 on the Metropolitan campus, and 5,160 on the Western campus), four out of five were freshmen. Part-time students outnumbered full-time students by almost two to one. Goals of CCC students suggested that about two-thirds had degree objectives beyond the 2-year-college level, and that 20 per cent chose business and finance as their proposed major. Most saw academic (80 per cent) and vocational (93 per cent) goals as important or essential in college. More than 75 per cent of all CCC students expected to reside at home, and 66 per cent intended to work part-time. Most Metropolitan campus students lived in the metropolitan Cleveland area, while Western campus students resided predominantly in the surrounding suburbs. Thirty-four per cent of CCC students' fathers had earned less than a high school diploma, seven per cent a college degree, and four per cent a graduate degree. The largest number of CCC students on both campuses fell in the 18- to 20-year age range, though 17 per cent were 31 or older. (JO)
