Expectations of Garland [Junior College].
Garland Junior Coll., Boston, MA.
A survey was conducted at Garland Junior College to determine the educational expectations of 69 new students, 122 parents, and 22 college faculty and administrators. Each group in this private women's college was asked to rank, in terms of expectations they held, the following items: learn job skills, mature in relations with others, become more sure of self, clarify goals and values, and become a better student. While parents of resident students were concerned that their daughters clarify goals, parents of commuter students ranked job skills highest. Entering students in general also ranked job skills first and becoming a better student last. In answer to the request for comments, parents showed concern for their daughters' personal growth, students expected career preparation, and staff concentrated their comments on implementation of these goals.
