A Descriptive Study of 1972, 1973, and 1974 Graduates at Virginia Western Community College.
Houston, C. A.
The study examined the curricula, types of degrees, opinions, and immediate plans of the 1972, 1973, and 1974 graduates at Virginia Western Community College (VWCC). Data for the study were obtained from graduate files and a questionnaire administered by VWCC's Office of Institutional Research. The college awarded 1,097 degrees in five degree programs with 29 areas of study. Approximately 80 percent of the graduates completed the graduate questionnaires. Results indicated increases in female graduates, more married graduates, and no significant changes in parents' highest educational levels. Significant changes of higher ratings of counseling services and social activities were indicated by 1974 graduates in comparison with 1972 graduates. Approximately 94 percent of all graduates stated that they would recommend their programs of study to others. The study concluded that there has been both quantitative and qualitative growth in services offered by the college. (Author)
