Entering Class of Fall 1973: Demographic Data Report.
This report describes the demographic characteristics of entering freshmen in Fall 1973 at Atlantic Community College (New Jersey). All 707 of the newly enrolled first time students were surveyed. It was found that the typical ACC full-time entering student attends ACC because it is close to home. He or she is the only college student in his family, is single, and lives at home. He/she is not supported by parents and thus plans to work while in school and needs financial aid. This student, a public high school graduate, wants to study business, social science, or education, and plans to transfer to a four year college. He/she needs educational and vocational counseling, as well as help with reading and study skills. The report also compares ACC student characteristics to nationwide characteristics. They are more likely to be from poorer homes dependent upon public assistance. They receive less money from their parents and fewer are claimed as dependents by their parents. (ER)
