Glendale Community College Student Views 2002, Results of the 2002 Spring Student Survey.
Karpp, Edward R.
This document presents the results of Glendale Community College's (California) 2002 Spring Student Survey, which collects demographic data along with student views of the college. The 2002 survey focused on issues related to planning and evaluation as a result of Glendale's commitment to revisiting the Educational Master Plan. Student responses for the past six surveys (1997-2002) are shown in three sections: (1) demographic information; (2) student response to technology items; and (3) student evaluations of college experiences. Key findings for 2002 include: (1) 60% of credit students are female; (2) nearly 70% are non-native speakers of English; (3) 87% of credit students report having Internet access at home or work; (4) 79% of students are satisfied with their educational experience; and (5) 49% rate campus life, including clubs and student government, as excellent or good. Students were also asked why they chose to attend Glendale. The most frequent responses to this question were the college's proximity to their home (46%) and the advice of family and friends (40%). Appended is a discussion of the research method. (RC)
