The Class of 1975: A Retrospective Look at the Mission of IUPUI at Columbus. A Report to Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, Columbus Campus.
Khoury, Robert M.
Results of a survey of alumni of Columbus Campus of Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis are presented. The objective of the investigation of 206 members of the class of 1975 was to determine whether their college experience made a positive difference in their lives. Respondents reported that education, business, and engineering/technology were their most frequently chosen major fields of study at the Columbus Campus. The modal class member was born in Indiana, was between 32 and 41 years old, married, the parent of two children, the resident of a small Indiana city, and a home owner. Nearly one-half of the families surveyed had incomes of more than $25,000 a year, and 14.6 percent had incomes greater than $40,000 per year. More than a third felt that their college education has been invaluable in their life, while another 48.5 percent felt it had helped their life and career, and about 12 percent felt either no impact on their life or negative effects from college attendance. Additional findings, student comments, and questionnaire items and responses are appended. (SW)
