Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) initiated summer evening classes during summer 1985. In June 1985, a study was conducted to evaluate the functions, services, and facilities of the summer school and to develop a profile of MATC summer students. A random sample of 1,609 (38.5%) of the 4,183 students enrolled in summer 1985 were surveyed in-class by their instructors. Study findings included the following: (1) a majority of students at all campuses were female, with a high of 73% female among North Campus day students; (2) the three most important reasons for attending at all locations were to earn an associate degree, acquire skills for a new job, and earn transfer credit; (3) approximately 35% of the students at Milwaukee Campus were minority group members, compared to 9.5% at South Campus, 14.1% at North Campus, and 14.6% at West Campus; (4) about 20% of the day students and 60% of the evening students were working more than 34 hours per week; (5) campus choice was influenced most by low costs and convenient location; (6) highest ratings were given to the following items: "the manner in which I have been treated,""the quality of teaching I have received at MATC," and "the courses I have taken at MATC." The survey instrument and responses by campus and day/evening status are included. (LAL)
