The Good News:

(1)     Almost half of our first-year students already belong to an on-campus club/organization

(2)     Almost half of our first-year students participate in recreation/fitness activities at CCSU.

(3)     71% of these students visited a professor during his/her office hours (at least once or twice)

(4)     A majority (53%) of our first-year students work less than 6 hours per week off campus

(5)     79% of students reported attending at least 90% of these classes in their first semester (PLEASE NOTE: Students could only complete this survey if they attended the class in which it was given).

 

The Bad News:

(1)     69.5% of our first-year student self-reported spending 10 hours or less per week preparing for class (e.g., studying, reading, writing, doing homework, etc.)

(2)     Low participation in student government (11%)

(3)     Limited amount of community engagement (off-campus field trips, volunteer work)
