Impressions of C. E. U. as Expressed by Local High School Graduates, 1975.
Seegmiller, Jesse F.
In August 1975, the College of Eastern Utah (CEU) sent a questionnaire to all 380 1975 graduates of the three local high schools. Of the 148 respondents, 55 percent planned to enter CEU, 10 percent planned to enter a four-year college, 8 percent planned to enter another two-year college, 17 percent planned to work full-time, and 10 percent had other plans. The most prominent factors motivating those who planned to enter CEU were that they could live at home and that they were offered financial aid; Other factors included the promptings of parents and relatives, the quality of the social activities, the availability of personal attention, the lower expense, and the quality of education at CEU. The most important reasons given for choosing other schools were special educational programs, the other schools' academic reputations, the recommendations of students at those schools, and the availability of financial aid. Students from both high-income and low-income families were generally unsure of the quality of education at CEU. A demographic profile of the sample is provided, as are detailed data on the respondents' opinions of CEU. (DC)
