Follow-up Study of Discontinuing Students at Indiana University at South Bend.
Haas, Patricia
This study determined the reasons that students who were classified as sophomores and juniors in the spring 1972 semester failed to return to Indiana University at South Bend for the fall 1973 semester. A review of the literature and a survey adapted from one used by Grossman College indicates: (1) Recreational facilities and vocational and educational guidance on campus received lower ratings by the students. (2) There was dissatisfaction with opportunities for informal and social contacts with students, quality of counseling assistance on problems of educational and vocational choice, availability of courses and facilities in major fields of study, and availability of occupational information in choosing occupations. (3) Academic difficulty or marriage were listed in some cases as reasons for discontinuance, as was a lack of interest in studies. (Author/MJM)
