Matross, Ronald; And Others
OSA Research Bulletin, v20 n1 Dec 14 1979
Views of students at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus concerning five services that receive the largest amounts of student services fees were surveyed in 1979. Telephone interviews were conducted with three subsamples: 162 students were questioned about the Boynton Health Service and the "Minnesota Daily"; 156 students were questioned about the Student Legal Service, recreational sports, and the "Daily." Among the findings are the following: 57 percent said they were satisfied with the "Daily," 23 percent were neutral, and 19 percent were dissatisfied; 50 percent said that the required fee for the "Daily" should be continued, 42 percent said it should be made optional, and 7 percent said it should be eliminated; 58 percent had used Boynton Health Service at least once; 94 percent of those who had used Boynton Health Service said they were moderately satisfied (43 percent) or very satisfied (51 percent); 67 percent said that they used Coffman Union on weekdays, and 30 percent said they used Coffman on weekends and evenings; 30 percent of the respondents had not previously heard of the University Student Legal Service, and this figure rose to 65 percent among St. Paul campus respondents; twice as many respondents (17 percent) said they had sought legal service elsewhere in the past year as had gone to the university service (8 percent); during the past year, 53 percent of the respondents said they had participated in self-service recreational sports, 33 percent in intramurals, and 8 percent in sports clubs. Information is presented about the five services, and a sample questionnaire and bibliography are appended. (SW)
