Daytona Beach Community Coll., FL.
A survey was distributed to all public high schools in Volusia/Flagler counties (Florida) and two nonpublic high schools; 2,220 of the 3,053 high school seniors enrolled for the 1993-94 academic year completed the survey for a response rate of 73 percent. Findings indicated that the most popular careers were as follows: acting, music, and dance; physical therapist; computer programming; athletic trainer, sports medicine; nurse; psychologist, sociologist; general management; lawyer; accounting; and electronics. Seniors also indicated broad career fields and specific occupations that were of interest to them. Eighty-five percent planned to continue their education immediately after high school graduation. More than 50 percent planned to complete Master's, doctoral, or professional degrees. Twenty percent planned to complete associate degrees or technical/trade certificates. Low cost and financial aid availability were important factors when deciding on a college. More than 50 percent were considering attending a community college. About 52 percent would like to be contacted by a Daytona Beach Community College representative and given enrollment information and assistance. (Seven figures and 14 tables are provided.
