Most plan to enrol in cum- munily or agricultural col- leges. Two plan to go to the U of A. one to LCC, one to Medi- cine Hat College and one to the Olds Agricultural College. None indicated they had any thoughts of attending the University of Lethbridge. lents express concern about U of L program offei know a guy who went lo Lcthbridgc and he suggested I go lo the U of said one student. A general lack of knowl- edge about the U of L was noticeable among UK stu- dents. No one has ever given the institution much more than a passing thought. University in Medicine Mat generally means Calgary or Edmonton. MAGKATII KiL'ht students inter- viewed and six said they plan to atlerd college or univer- sity in the fall. None of those six will en- rol at the U of L. liYU will be the big winner in Mi'jrolh, two of the six s: id that is where they plan lo go. The remrinder were f-ilit between the U of A, the LCC and Utah State. There was no feeling of identification or loyalty for the U of L among the group interviewed. The universities with "sta- tus" for Magrath students are the U of A and BYU. The desire to get away from home was also a domin- ant factor in the selection of a university. The U of L is just "too close." TAIiEU The University of Leth- bridge is relatively popular ill Tabor. Six of seven stu- dents interviewed said they plan to attend university, and three of those six expressed a preference for the U of L. The main reasons behind their choice were that it is a small institution and, since it is close to home, it is cheap- er lo attend. "H is small enough that you don't get trampled by numbers and there is SUD- posed to be a good ptudenl- ter.cher said one student. However, students say they heard ''quite a few nega- tive comments" about the U of L. They also felt that the uni- versity could do a better job of informing people of what is available. But, most said they still This survey was conduct- ed in the following man- ner. Principals of the 18 high schools were contact- ed by telephone and ask- ed to select a group of 10 to 12 potential university studenls in Grade 12 at random, to be interviewed about their plans for the fall. have a positive attitude about the local campus. CLAKESIIOLH Five studenls were inter- viewed, three expressed an intention to enrol at the Uni- versity of Alberta while two are undecided. The undecided studenls said they are considering the U of L. However, one extended only a remote possibility to his ac- tually enrolling. The 186 students were interviewed face to face, individually and as a group. In comparison a Gallup Poll of Canadian opinion involves about 850 people out of a total pop- ulation of more than This is regarded os a true representative sampling. ''The physics department seems lacking in he said. For another, the U of L represents "less of a jump from high school." For the others, it was a case of the courses they want- ed not being available locally or a feeling that the stand- ards at the U of L not as bigh as in Edmonton. CHOWSNEST PASS Support for the University of Lethbridge is practically non-existanl. Only one of HI students interviewed said she was considering going to the U of L. Six arc headed for the University of Calgary wiiile two are going to the U of A. One is undecided. "I like (lie whole univer- sity, and it's closer to home." said the single U of L sup- porter. One student said Lethbridge was recommended by a coun- sellor because of its educa- tion faculty. The majority of the stu- dents in the Crowsnest Pass region regard the U of C as "their university.'' The lack of courses and facilities at the U of L has turned some students off. Students also felt the U of A and the U of C have done a better job of keeping them informed. "The other universities have been here but no one from the University of Loth- bridge has ever been here commented one stu- dent. "lieally, we haven't heard much ol anything ab.iut file U of L." IMNCHEP. CT'.EEK Two of students inter- viewed said they are planning to attend the University of Lethbridge. Two others indi- cated they are still consider- ing the U of L. The remainder arc split among the U of A. fhe t" of C. SAIT and Ihe University of British Columbia. "f could iind a job easier in Lethbridge but 1 would have to transfer lo Calgary after two years because they don't offer a full commerce program in said one student. Another student who has applied to the U of L said, "f don't really want to go there. I just applied in case I can't get into the Univer- sity of Calgary." The U of C is regarded as the "s t a t u s'1 university among Pinchcr Creek stu- dents.
