The MATWAB Report on the Orientation Program at Western Michigan University. Orientation of New WMU Students, Summer 1969, June 29 through August 1.
Matsumura, Reiko; And Others
The first paper presents the results of an Orientation Evaluation Questionnaire returned by 386 students who participated in Western Michigan University's (WMU) 1967 orientation program. Each of the 20 questions covered various aspects of the program. Student replies were analyzed and provide the basis for recommendations for subsequent programs. In the second paper, the 1969 WMU orientation program is explored. All facets are thoroughly covered: (1) procedure for making orientation assignments; (2) the format of the program; (3) selection and training of student staff; (4) parents' orientation; and (5) the use of residence halls and selection of residence hall staff. Plans for a followup study are discussed. The differences between the 1967 evaluative orientation report and the 1969 program are indicated by the fact that there were changes in virtually every phase of the program. Extensive recommendations for the 1970 program are presented. (TL)
