Graduating Seniors Look Back at Their Freshman Year in College.
Blake, Elias, Jr.
The data in this report came from a questionnaire administered to 2,448 graduating seniors at 13 predominantly black colleges. The basic goal was to determine if there were any differences in the perceptions of graduating seniors who had been enrolled in the Thirteen-College Curriculum Program (TCCP) and those who had not. TCCP is a program designed to deal with the particular problems of black students. A detailed questionnaire called for the following types of administration: background-demographic data; post-graduate plans and aspirations; attitudes toward attending a black college; financial patterns for paying college expenses; perceptions of the impact of the freshman year; perceptions of college classroom environment by year; self-concept ratings; opinions of the organization of higher education with some emphasis on student participation. Results indicate that students enrolled in TCCP were engaged in a unique educational experience that encouraged students from lower-than-normal income levels to continue their educations. (Author/CS)
