1974 Senior Survey.
Coles, H. William, III
A random sample of 716 seniors at the State University of New York at Buffalo (SUNY/B) expecting to graduate in June 1974 were sent a questionnaire concerning their college experiences, perceptions, and future plans. The sample was composed of nearly equivalent numbers of men and women. Statistical comparisons were made, where appropriate, between men's and women's responses. Thirty-eight percent of those sampled responded listing areas of concern that had given them the most difficulty during college; they indicated the importance of goals of personal, social, intellectual, or professional development during college. The seniors ranked the functions of SUNY/B and expressed their concern for the discrepancies between ideal and actual importance of experiences. Among the other areas surveyed are the students' educational plans comparing initial and current degree plans, choice of major, and plans for future formal education; career choice and job expectations; and anticipated life styles.
