A Comparison of Entering Full-Time Freshmen at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, With Entering Full-Time Freshmen in Other Universities, Fall 1973. Office of Institutional Research Vol. 14, No. 18.
Larsen, Suzanne W.
The responses of the entering full-time freshmen at UTK are compared with those of the norm group for public universities with "low selectivity" on the descriptive, attitudinal, and expectancy items of the American Council on Education's annual freshman survey. Two additional comparisons were made. One was with the responses from the previous year's study at UTK and one with the responses of the norm group for "All Universities." It was found that a higher percentage of UTK students fell in the younger age brackets and that considerably fewer stated a religious preference for Roman Catholicism. Proportionately more of the UTK students apply only to UTK and proportionately less UTK students are concerned about financing their college education. A greater precentage of the males at UTK chose engineering as a college major and career occupation. The only differences in the proportion of responses for UTK and Selected and All universities on subjective items were on items of lesser overall importance, such as choice of college residence and social organization.
