The Student at Youngstown State University: Attitudes and Opinions, 1976-77.
Bertelsen, C. David
Youngstown State University is a predominantly commuter campus. A six-page questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 2,000 students in the fall 1976 focusing on attitudes and opinions concerning commuting and associated problems, activities, and student services. Specific areas surveyed include demographic data; general university programs, including advisement, safety, clerical assistance, quality of education, satisfaction with the university, and most important problem facing YSU students; participation in activities, including frequency of participation, reasons for nonparticipation, specific interests, and student government; communications; commuting specifics, such as time on campus, mode of transportation, and convenience of library hours and scheduling problems; and student services. The analysis reveals that most students had positive perceptions of the quality of education, participated in at least one extracurricular activity per quarter, and spent at least one to five nonclass hours on campus. Demographic variables had little or no effect on the responses to the questions in the study. (JMF)
