Effects of Group-Counseling Treatment Upon Transfer Students' Perceptions of the College Environment.
Harvey, Merris W.
This study seeks to determine transfer students' perceptions of the college environment and to demonstrate a positive effect on their perceptions of the environmental press by means of a group-counseling procedure. Forty-six transfer students were given the College and University Environmental Scales, second edition (CUES II), which was designed to measure student perceptions of the environment at a given college. The study utilized a pretest-posttest control group design, with the experimental group receiving both directive and nondirective group counseling. Results indicated a significant difference between the two groups on two of the five CUES II scales: community and campus morale. There was a failure to identify any significant differences between the sex subgroups, but because of the small size of the subgroups, this finding was not surprising. Implications of the study and recommendations for further research are outlined. (Author/PC)
