Crawford, A. E., II
ESS Reports, v2 n3 Oct 1989
Opinions of 681 University of Nebraska at Omaha students concerning college services and the college environment were surveyed, and results compared with four previous surveys. The survey utilized the standardized instrument developed by the American College Testing Corporation along with a series of local information questions. The survey's four sections included: background information (sex, age, ethnic group, and class standing); satisfaction with college services; college environment (academic, admissions, rules and regulations, facilities, registration, and general); and local information (attitudes towards the college and the major department, and opinions concerning the educational experience). Results showed that from 1986 to 1989 there was a general decline in satisfaction ratings on specific aspects, though students' overall view of the institution remained positive. Areas demonstrating the largest increases in satisfaction were day care, credit by examination, and college mass transit, while areas demonstrating the largest decreases in satisfaction were personal counseling services, career planning services, and parking facilities and services.
