In April 1987, a survey was conducted at Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) to provide students with the opportunity to evaluate the college's functions, services, and facilities, and to gather data to construct profiles of MATC day, evening, and weekend college students. Questionnaires were administered in class to 7,725 MATC students, including 3,010 day students, 4,110 evening students, and 605 weekend college students. Study findings included the following: (1) a majority (i.e., 56% day, 56% evening, and 62% weekend) of MATC students were women; (2) the median age of students had increased slightly in recent years to 25.8 for day students, 31.7 for evening students, and 32.8 for weekend students; (3) 38% of the day students, 39% of the evening students, and 51% of the weekend college students had dependent children; (4) 4.2% of the MATC students spoke an Asian language at home; and (5) the percentage of minority students had been gradually increasing. The evaluation items revealed that students were well pleased with their instructors, the courses they were taking, and their treatment by instructional and non-instructional personnel; and also rated instructional facilities, equipment, and services and facililties for the handicapped highly. Areas of concern included student lounges, registration procedures, athletic activities, recreational facilities, and child care services. Tables showing survey responses by campus and the survey instrument are included. (EJV)
