Survey of Residence Hall Life at NCSU.
Dolin, Nancy C.
A 1977 North Carolina State University survey of a sample of on-campus students determined their attitudes toward residence hall activities, facilities, and staff. Information is shown by sex, class, and residence hall, and totals are weighted to reflect actual proportions in each dorm. Among the findings are the following: cookouts, movies, beer blasts, and parties appear to be the most popular social activities in the residence halls; attendance in residence hall educational and cultural activities was very low in comparison to social and recreational activities; a majority of students felt that both senior staff members and resident advisors should be responsible for selected residence hall functions; senior staff members were rated highest for handling administrative aspects and for being a source of information; most students indicated that their advisor carried out the selected functions in a satisfactory manner; more than two-thirds of the students indicated that they had needed assistance from senior staff members; resident advisors appear to be in greater demand to students than are senior staff members and are more available when needed. Student opinions about residence hall facilities are also presented. (SW)
