Survey of Attitudes Toward a Student Activities Program for Johnson County Community College, Shawnee Mission, Kansas.
Tolbert, Patsie S.
To incorporate many of the suggestions of the authors of community college student activities studies, it is necessary to investigate and determine the characteristics, needs, and desires of community college students. A 15 per cent sample of the student population at Johnson County Community College (Kansas) was surveyed by an instrument developed by the author (appended in the report). The following were determined: average student characteristics; educational goals; reasons for choice of college; degree of satisfaction with friendliness among students and faculty; 72 per cent of the students surveyed recognize the necessity of having campus activities; reasons students may not be attending activities; main source of information about activities; activities students would like to see developed on campus; and who should plan activities. The conclusion is that students do feel a need for organized activity programs, but the extent of the programs is limited by current interest, kind of activity, time required for participation, and students' knowledge of events taking place.
