CYCC's Entering First-time Freshmen, and Transfer Students, Fall, 1975.
Kirby, E. B.
In order to obtain a profile of Central YMCA Community College (CYCC) entering students, CYCC participated in the 1975 American Council on Education and UCLA survey of incoming freshman students. At CYCC, the survey was administered in class to 322 students (187 first-time, full-time freshmen, 133 transfers-in, and 12 part-time freshmen). The entire CYCC entering population was 1,154. The national sample consisted of 300,000 students in 562 postsecondary institutions. This document compares the CYCC student body to the national sample. Although the national sample was almost evenly divided between males and females, the CYCC sample contained two and a half times as many females as males. The national sample was nine percent black, while CYCC's sample was about 80 percent black. The percentage of Puerto Ricans, Orientals, and Mexican-Americans was also higher at CYCC than nationally. The CYCC student body exceeded the national norm in the percentage of students who had never completed high school, or who were significantly delayed between high school and college. CYCC students were significantly older than the national norm, and were ten times as likely to be married. CYCC students also tended to be poorer, and had parents with less education and lower income levels than did students in the national sample. (Author/NHM)
