Student-Parent Attitudes Toward Certain Regulations and the Entering Students' Preparation for Self-Regulation.
Tautfest, Patricia B.; Young, F. Chandler
A survey was conducted to determine student-parent attitudes toward non-academic University regulations and entering students' preparation for self-regulation. Questionnaires were completed by currently enrolled undergraduate students, their parents, and parents of freshmen planning to enroll at the University in the fall of 1969. Current student attitudes toward regulations, parental expectations for regulations and the level of preparation for self-direction and responsibility of prospective students were determined. Differences in response existed between parents and students in regard to freshmen housing, hours and visitation privileges. The findings indicate a need for flexibility in responding to the variation in the maturity levels of students. A variety of housing, more effective programs for the inexperienced student and orienting parents toward a more realistic picture of student life are suggestions to combat current student and parental problems uncovered by the survey.
