The Attitudes and Needs of Freshmen at Mid-Year. Noel-Levitz Research Report, 2012
Noel-Levitz, Inc
This companion report to Noel-Levitz's "2012 National Freshman Attitudes Report" examines the self-reported attitudes, motivations, and needs of college freshmen at the beginning vs. the middle of the 2011-2012 academic year, based on survey responses from a sizable sample of more than 4,000 freshmen attending college in 2011-2012. Highlights include: (1) Only about half or less of the freshman respondents at private and public four-year institutions reported they had received help with career planning; (2) Two-thirds of the respondents indicated they "get along well" with people who openly disagree with them, up from just over half at the start of the year; and (3) Fifty-five percent of the respondents at two-year public institutions, 18 percent of the respondents at four-year public institutions, and 9 percent of the respondents at four-year private institutions reported they planned to transfer to another college or university to complete a degree or program. Complete findings are appended. (Contains 3 tables.)
