The Special Studies Program at Hofstra University is designed for high school graduates applying to the University whose educational backgrounds require a more personalized approach to introductory collegiate work. A 26-item questionnaire was administered to 27 former Special Studies students. In addition to demographic data, the areas covered by the questionnaire include present employment status; college attendance; graduation status; reason for enrolling in Special Studies; reason for wanting a college degree; political and community activities; educational plans; educational and social attitudes; satisfaction with specific Special Studies activities; areas where students in the program need special help or advice; ranking various aspects of the program; and personal feelings about the program.
