Glendale Community College Student Views, 1999. Results of the 1999 Spring Student Survey.
Karpp, Edward R.
This report presents the results of Glendale Community College's 1999 Spring Student Survey. More than 2,800 students completed this survey. Class scheduling issues were emphasized in the survey. Less than one-fourth of credit students reported they had problems getting the classes they wanted in the spring semester. This was a small decrease from the previous year. The most common problem students cited was full classes. Parking problems were also addressed. Most students perceive parking to be about the same as it was when they first enrolled at the college. Students cited mornings as the most difficult time to park on campus. Approximately 33% of respondents said they would park in an off-campus parking lot and ride a free shuttle to the college; 25% said "maybe"; and 42% said they would not park in an off-campus lot. Other questions focused on student access to technology. Student computer access outside of the college continued to increase dramatically. About 75% of credit students reported access to a computer at home. Nearly 62% reported they had Internet access either at home or at work. The number of students with home Internet access has increased from 25% in 1996 to 55% in 1999. The methodology for administering this student survey is appended in the report. (VWC)
