Environmental assessment of Colorado State University (CSU) was undertaken to identify mismatches between the needs and goals of students and the resources and goals of the University. The perceptions and attitudes of a large representative sample of CSU students were measured using the College Student Questionnaire (CSQ) and the Environmental Satisfaction Questionnaire (ESQ), an instrument designed to measure stress experienced by CSU students. Information about exact events leading to dissatisfaction, coping mechansims and possible remedies was gathered from those students reporting stress on the ESQ. Three primary areas of stress for CSU students were identified as finincial support, educational-vocational planning, and personal growth and development. Comparisons by sex, class and college were also presented. Specific recommendations included the creation of a campus environmental assessment-design center, further analysis of the data, greater student orientation to university resources, and greater administrative awareness of and response to student needs.
