During a door-to-door campaign in August, 1978, 27 South Oklahoma City Junior College (SOCJC) employees distributed approximately 7,000 packets containing a college schedule, a stockholders' report, and a mail-back questionnaire. Additionally, 221 personal interviews were conducted. Of those interviewed, 94.6% had heard of the school. Of those, 69.9% felt positive about SOCJC, while only 4.8% had negative feelings towards the school. Approximately 41% of those aware of the college had heard of it through personal contacts; 40% had been living in the area and had seen the college being built; 18% indicated that they had become aware of the college through the newspaper. Of the 69 respondents who had participated in educational activities over the previous four years, 56.5% had attended SOCJC. The data obtained from the 52 questionnaires that were returned indicated that Monday through Thursdays were the preferred days for classes, and early evening was the preferred time. Recreational courses, such as Outdoor Sports, Music, and Art were the most popular, while Home Improvement courses rated second. The study report includes sample questionnaires as well as item-by-item responses. (Author/JP)
