An Analysis of Student Academic and Personal Concerns and Awareness of Counseling Services.
Dye, H. Allen; Akers, Stephen J.
Three main questions are considered: (1) what concerns and worries do students feel? (2) to what extent do they think their personal problems warrant professional assistance? and (3) where would they turn for help if it were available? The Mooney Problem Check List, 1950 revision, form C, was used with 1114 Purdue undergraduate, single, full-time students. The data was analyzed to determine the significance of the following variables; (1) sex; (2) class level; (3) type of housing; and (4) academic performance. A five-part questionnaire, developed partly from the above data, was designed to measure student utilization and awareness of available sources of help and to determine why students did not use existing Purdue counseling services. Conclusions were discussed and implications for further research are suggested. (TL)
