The Graduates: Selected Characteristics of Students who Graduated June 1967.
Reichard, Donald J.
In an attempt to characterize graduates and their attitudes toward the institution, 538 (84%) of Cuyahoga Community College's (CCC) 407 accounting machine. Responses were analyzed in regard to six main variables: sex, age, type of high school attended, plans to continue education, previous college attendance, and grade point average. When the percentage of responses of particular groups to an item showed considerable variance, the data were subjected to analysis through the chi square technique for determining statistical significance. The report contains background characteristics of the college's 1967 graduates, and investigation of the students' future plans, patterns of financial support, and an analysis of the graduates' attitudes toward the institution. It was found that (1) almost 9 out of 10 graduates would return to CCC if they had it to do over, (2) more than a third of the graduates attended other institutions of higher education prior to attendance at CCC, (3) more than 80% of the graduates intended to transfer to one of four 4-year institutions in Ohio, (4) almost one in five received financial aid from the college, and (5) students cited the competence and friendliness of the faculty as the characteristics of the college which they liked best.
