Stabilization of Freshman Enrollment by Analysis of College Choice Factors and College Services.
Stewart, Michael O.; Hannafin, Kathleen M.
A 20 percent random sample of first-time enrolled freshman students at Fort Hays Kansas State College were requested to respond to a three-part questionnaire. Fifty-six items were evaluated regarding the efficiency and influence of the institutions services available to incoming students. Replies were received from 66 percent of the sample. The analysis of the survey indicates that pre-admission contacts with the financial aid office played an important role in influencing students to attend Fort Hays. The pre-admission contacts with the admission/registrar and housing offices played relatively minor roles, while the field service offices had a less positive influence on college choice. More than half of the students indicated that they were very pleased with Fort Hays while less than 2 percent indicated disappointment with Fort Hays Kansas State College. (MJM)
