Campus Climate Survey: Student Opinions of the Campus Environment.
This is a report on a campus climate survey measuring Cypress Community College (California) students' general perception of the college campus and the services it provides. Students also were asked about their feelings of acceptance or belonging, as well as their satisfaction with the level of ethnic diversity present at the community college. A total of 2,004 students were surveyed, and 1,019 (51%) responded. Survey results showed that approximately one-third of the community college's student population can be classified as non-traditional. A third of the community college students are: over the age of 24, non-U.S. natives, learning English as a second language, and working full-time. Nearly 20% of the surveyed students reported taking classes exclusively at night. Most students reported to have access to the Internet and a computer at home. The three most commonly reported reasons for attending the community college were price, location, and available college majors. Overall, most students reported being satisfied with the campus diversity, services, instruction, and their sense of belonging. (Contains 18 tables with survey questions and results.) (MKF)
