Problems, Perplexities and Satisfactions of Students at UT-Knoxville. 1974 Campus Opinion Survey. Final Report.
Haskins, Jack B.; Cadotte, Bruce
All findings and tabulations from the 1974 survey, including a statement of methodology, are reported. This includes a crosstabulation of all results by age, sex, college, class level, and other variables. The data were collected from a representative sample of University of Tennessee at Knoxville students. Among the principal findings are: (1) students feel that the greatest problem on campus is attacks on women; other problems are venereal disease, getting money for education, and excessive drug use; (2) students are extremely favorable toward a variety of new ideas for campus improvement, but are strongly opposed to reinstatement of final exam week and to artificial turf on the athletic fields; (3) students are well aware of procedures for some academic matters and replacement of ID cards, but know very little about other important procedures; (4) students are extremely satisfied with "life in general" but mixed satisfactions are reported for specific matters, and unfamiliarity with some aspects of campus life was prevalent; (5) assessment of changes in student satisfaction between 1973 and 1974 show that overall, campus organizations and administrators ranked about the same, but slight increases in satisfaction were registered toward specific services and slight decreases toward the UT system and UT-Knoxville.
