Kassera, Wayne J.; Peterson, Bruce O.
This report, while discussing briefly the rationale and methods utilized in the study, primarily focuses on the findings. A questionnaire was used to collect data, from 3 student population groups (those in residence halls, off-campus housing or commuting), concerning their needs and desires in 12 content areas: (1) art; (2) athletics; (3) community services; (4) contemporary issues; (5) drama; (6) field and stream; (7) foreign languages; (8) games; (9) literature; (10) music; (11) physical and natural sciences; and (12) social and behavioral sciences. An overwhelming number of students (total sample, 96%) were found to be interested in pursuing educative activities outside of their formal academic programs. The data is broken down by students' place of residence, sex, and educative activity preferences. A bibliography and a copy of the questionnaire are included. (TL)
