Freshmen Expectations of the University of Maryland, 1971-72.
Horowitz, Joseph L.; Sedlacek, William E.
The present study had as its purpose to determine incoming freshmen expectations of the University of Maryland. Two models of the College and University Environment Scales (CUES) were utilized in the study, and the data were analyzed to determine the relationship between CUES I and CUES II results, between 1969 and 1971 freshmen perceptions, and between the perceptions of freshmen entering different colleges of the university. Results of the study indicate that the two instruments seem to be measuring the same things, and incoming freshmen held the same expectations of the institution regardless of their intended college of enrollment. Large changes were recorded between 1969 and 1971 on all scales of CUES except scholarship. These changes were in the direction of significantly lower expectations and were more in line with perceptions of upperclassmen. Several new and emerging roles for student personnel workers seem possible and desirable. (HS)
