Evaluation of a Weekend Programming Calendar for Freshmen at Clarion University of Pennsylvania.
Adams, William A.
This practicum report describes a project which evaluated the extent to which the weekend programming calendar for first-year students at Clarion University (Pennsylvania) was meeting program goals and integrating freshmen into the social setting of the campus. A questionnaire was used to survey 200 freshmen. Survey results indicated that students favored some weekend events more than others, that most events were well attended, that most students were satisfied with many events, that students were informed of events by campus posters and friends, and that students wanted to travel from Clarion University to additional events. Specific recommendations were developed, including: (1) continuation of events that encourage interaction with faculty and peers; (2) sponsoring of events that take students to popular spots near Clarion for an entire day; (3) encouragement of students to participate in recreational sports and artistic/musical activities; and (4) delivery of low-cost events more than once a semester. Individual sections of the paper provide an introduction and review of the literature, explain methodology and procedures, report results, and discuss conclusions, implications, and recommendations. Appendices include a list of outcomes of the original programming calendar, lists of committee members, and guidelines for freshman programming assessment. (Contains 14 references.) (DB)
