I Expect to Find that SUNY/B... Survey Study 1, 1971 Freshmen.
Wyant, Helen S.
The voluminous research of the last 10 years on college students and on the function of higher education has emphasized the importance of personal and social growth of students in addition to their intellectual and vocational development. The State University of New York at Buffalo, since 1964, has increased efforts to support and initiate policies and programs that contribute constructively to the personal, social and intellectual growth of students and to modify or eliminate those that obstruct it. In order for this effort to be most effective, it is necessary to understand: (1) the personal, social, and intellectual needs, interests, values, and goals of the students; (2) the experiences that contribute to satisfaction and development of those phenomena in constructive ways; and (3) the most effective means of providing opportunities for those experiences to occur. Thus, the Student Perception Survey (SPS) was devised to elicit student perceptions of the following categories: academic, personal, social, vocational, and administrative. The subjects reported on in this document were students about to enter SUNY-Buffalo as Freshmen in the fall of 1971. The form of the SPS is a series of incomplete sentences that explore the students' perceptions of: (1) their impending college experience; (2) relationships with family and friends; and (3) themselves.
