Survey of Graduates, 1968-1972.
Graduates of Atlantic Community College (ACC) from 1968 to 1972 were surveyed as to their personal characteristics, background, college attendance prior to ACC enrollment, ACC academic background, present main endeavor, employment or further education since ACC graduation, and evaluation of ACC experience. Of the 1,331 questionnaires mailed, 32 percent were returned. Twenty-five percent of the respondents reported college attendance prior to enrollment at ACC; 45 percent of these indicated academic difficulties at the prior college. Twenty-two percent of the respondents were presently employed full-time, while 28 percent were continuing their education full-time and 18 percent part-time. Thirty-nine percent of the respondents had already earned additional degrees since leaving ACC. Fifty percent of those employed were working in the field of their ACC preparation, 31 percent were not, and 19 percent said they did not prepare for any particular field. Overall experience at ACC was rated highly by 89 percent of the respondents. The highest ratings were given in the areas of curriculum and instruction. Student services were less highly rated. (BB)
