A Descriptive Study of Commuter Students at the University of South Carolina, Fall 1974. Research Notes No. 25-75.
Thrift, Julianne Still; Fidler, Paul P.
During the fall of 1974, a questionnaire was administered to a random sample of 700 off-campus students at the main campus of the University of South Carolina who were enrolled in nine or more semester hours of course work (approximately 8 percent of the population). The goal of the study was to describe off-campus students including their perceived needs so that their input could be considered in decision-making processes. The results of the questionnaires were analysed to examine the students' views on the following issues: (1) the potential use of facilities on campus; (2) the desirability of a service and programming organization for commuters; (3) the relative importance of a variety of programs for commuters; (4) the degree of usage of various means of communication; (5) the amount of time spent on campus by commuters; and (6) the desirability of social functions planned for commuters.
