A Survey of Student Response to 24 Hour Parietals.
Dunn, Gail; Rickard, Scott T.
An experimental program of 24 hour parietals was implemented in 17 residential colleges in the fall of 1968. A questionnaire on residential life was sent to 4000 resident students. The study includes four tables regarding 24 hour parietals by comparing: (1) male-female problems; (2) differences among classes; (3) sex and class year; and (4) hall and suite living. Also contained are four more charts reflecting responses to the question: "Should parietals be continued?". These charts compare: (1) male-female responses; (2) class differences; (3) sex and class year responses; and (4) male and female hall, suite and coed living arrangements. Some results of the survey are: (1) female students experience more problems than male students with open visitation; (2) differences exist among classes; (3) differences exist among female classes; (4) students in coed housing have more problems with hall arrangements than with suites; (5) more females than males feel parietals should be continued, and (6) more seniors oppose open visitation than any other class.
