A Description of Graduates of Two-Year Colleges.
Baird, Leonard L.; And Others
This survey was a followup of the college experiences and achievements of 4009 second-year students at 29 two-year colleges. Students gave data on their background and plans, participation in non-academic activities, financial and work status, and general satisfaction with the college. Most planned to transfer to a 4-year college. They were satisfied with most aspects of the performance of their instructors, describing them as clear, factual, consistent, and concerned with the students. The students typically participated in extracurricular activities, but seldom achieved in the sense of attaining public recognition of their accomplishments. Most worked for at least part of their two years and most commuted to campus. Working or commuting, however, had little effect on college experience or achievement. Graduates were generally satisfied with their 2-year college. Some expected problems, such as finances, were found to be real; others, such as working or commuting time, were not as great as anticipated. (HH)
