Summer Orientation Report.
Maryland Univ., College Park.
The University of Maryland's Summer Orientation Program (1970) was designed to facilitate student's transition from the high school and home environment to the University environment. Separate programs were held for students and parents. Major goals of both programs are presented and include: (1) minimizing new student anxiety, (2) building a continuous feedback process into orientation, and (3) leaving parents and students with a favorable attitude toward learning and the University. This report elaborates the results of the Program Content Evaluation Questionnaires which were completed by parents and students regarding their respective participation in the seminars, general assembly presentations, campus tours, exhibitions and displays, etc. In addition students evaluated faculty advisement and registration, entertainment and informal "rap" sessions. Overall results were favorable. Data is also presented for a Transfer Orientation Program and a Special Orientation Program in September. (TL)
