The University Experience. The Third Year, 1966 Freshman Class. A Biography of a Class Study.
Rott, Marilyn A. H.
In 1964, the Division of Instructional Services established a longitudinal and developmental research project entitled "Biography of a Class." The purpose of the project is to describe, in detail, characteristics of the students attending the State University of New York at Buffalo, to provide information about students to faculty, administration, and students, and to contribute to existing research in higher education. The present report offers information on the freshman class of 1966 during their third year at Buffalo. The report is based on student interviews, and includes the students' description of their perceptions of the total university experience, their needs and concerns, and their aspirations and expectations, as well as different perspectives of the environment, as given by students, dropouts, and transfer students. This information can help determine the extent to which the university is fulfilling its objectives, and should be a vitally important factor in future academic planning, organizational changes, and shifts in policies and priorities.
