Summary

Los Angeles City College (LACC) students were surveyed to determine their demographic and academic characteristics, and their attitudes toward their education. Of a random sample of 2,000 day and evening students, 1,266 responded. Data from the fall 1978 survey are compared to those from a fall 1976 survey and to fall 1978 district-wide statistics. The principal reason for attending college given by both day (42%) and evening (53%) students was to "acquire or improve occupational or technical skills." The second most frequently given reason was to "prepare to transfer to a four-year college." Major reasons for attending LACC were that the college was close to home, had no tuition, and had a reputation for good teaching. When asked if they would attend LACC if tuition of about $5.00 per unit were charged, 25% indicated that they would attend, another 25% indicated that they would if they received financial aid, 25% indicated that they could not afford to attend, and the remaining 25% were uncertain. The principal study interest of day students was fine arts, with business and secretarial programs ranked second; among evening students, business was ranked first and fine arts ranked fourth. A bachelor's degree was sought by 60% of the respondents. About 60% of day students and 95% of evening students were employed. Teaching and the library were the highest ranked student services. Almost 20% had attended high school in a foreign country. (Author/MB)
