Survey of New College Alumni: 1968-1974.
Kinsel, John B.
The status of any college's alumni is one measure of the success or failure of that college. Recognizing this rather widely accepted principle, New College conducted a survey of its graduates who completed their BA degree sometime between 1968 and 1974. A questionnaire was prepared asking the graduates for information about their current address, current employment, on-going or completed graduate training and space for additional comments. Of the 371 questionnaires sent, an additional 32 percent were available for analysis. Some findings are: (1) the majority or respondents live in the local area including Nassau and Suffolk counties and New York City, with 70 percent of them living in the tri-state (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) area; (2) 63 percent of the respondents are currently pursuing or have completed post-baccalaureate education at 37 different institutions; (3) the proportion of undergraduates at the New College both past and present, pursuing the field of education is extremely small, while the number of students intending to pursue social service fields is extremely large. Yet these two fields are inversely represented among the alumni; (4) the number of New College alumni who have pursued additional training for education beyond the BA is high. (Author/KE)
