A total of 608 surveys were distributed to 23 faculty members, requesting that they administer the survey during regular class time, with 22 faculty actually administering the questionnaire. Study findings, based on responses from 336 students, included the following: (1) 57.3% of the sample were between the ages of 18 and 24, compared to 52.6% of all students, and 61.3% were female, compared to 57.3% of all students; (2) 83.6% of respondents agreed that the quality of instruction was excellent; (3) 63.9% thought that there was a good variety of courses in their major, while 82.7% thought that there was a good variety of general education courses; (4) 82.4% agreed that faculty's syllabi delineated the subject matter to be covered in courses; (5) over half of the respondents indicated that they had never heard of the college's Cooperative Work Experience Education program and School-to-Career Internship/Job Shadowing program; (6) respondents indicated that they were most likely to enroll in classes that meet in the morning, on weekdays, and last 18 weeks.
