A.C.T. Student Opinion Survey, Spring 1998: Summary Report of Verbatim Comments.
This report shows the results of 1998 student opinion survey at Rogue Community College (RCC) (Oregon). Results of the survey provide broad insight into strengths and weaknesses of the college's programs, services, and image. As part of the additional questions that RCC incorporated into the survey, students were given the opportunity to offer written comments on any topic they wished. This report summarizes what the 141 students who offered comments communicated and provides all verbatim comments. This year, the ACT Student Opinion Survey was conducted among students at the Grants Pass campus and Riverside Center. Grants Pass students most often remarked on classes and programs (27%) followed by faculty/staff and general comments (each 14%). In terms of classes and programs, students most often voice a desire for more variety/class times (23%), and more evening and summer classes (10% each). Not surprisingly, the parking situation was mentioned most often by Riverside Center students (27%). The vast majority of remarks on parking are negative (96%). Nearly four out of five (78%) of the remarks regarding faculty/staff are positive. All remarks on food service indicate a need for improved/expanded facilities. Many other comments relate to a desire for child and health care, and a possible need for better traffic control. (Contains Sample Summaries and Addendum Questionnaire.) (JA)
