Introduction

    This survey administration took place during the Spring 1997 semester, and sampled 2,000 students from Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) with 1,042 surveys actually processed for a 52% return rate. As stated in the original ACT report (p. 6), demographic differences between SCCC and other SUNY Community Colleges (SUNY CC) provide reason for some caution in interpreting the results of comparisons between the two. The largest differences included a higher percentage at SCCC than other SUNY CC of Hispanics, those working 21 or more hours a week, and those transferring from a 4 year college and a lower percentage of disabled students, students receiving financial aid, and student's taking day classes most frequently.
    Of all SCCC respondents, we determined that 207 (19.8%) attended classes primarily at the Eastern Campus, 415 (39.8%) at the Selden campus, and 225 (21.6%) at the Western campus. Problems with inaccurate identification numbers on returned surveys made impossible the determination of campus for 195 (18.7%) SCCC respondents. Please also note that the other SUNY CC means utilized in these analyses originated in Appendix A of the "Institutional Summary Report for Suffolk Community College: 1997 SUNY Student Opinion Survey Project" (ACT, 1997).
