Expectations of College and Beyond Slide # 1

Expectations of College and Beyond
• This section depicts information of ERAU’s Fall 2007 incoming freshmen class with respect to college experience satisfaction, academic expectations, interest in extracurricular activities, and life and career objectives. Longitudinal trends and national data are given for comparison whenever possible. • In some instances, statistical tests were run to determine whether responses of ERAU freshmen were significantly different from the national CIRP benchmark responses (see Part 1 for testing methodology). Table cells that are shaded indicate those areas where a statistically significant difference between either ERAU campus and CIRP is data existed.
