A gciicnd lack ol knowl- edge about the U of L was noticeable among UK slu- rtcnls.

There was no feeling of identification or loyally for the U of L among Ihe group interviewed. The universities with "sta- ins" for Magralh students are the U of A and BYU. The desire fo get away from home was also a domin- ant factor in the selection of a imiver.'.ily- The U of L is just "loo close." TAI1EU The University of Lc-lh- bridge is relatively popular in Tabor. Six of seven stu- dents interviewed said they plan fo atlend university, and three of Ihose six expressed a preference for the U of L. The main reasons behind their choice were thai it is a small institution and, since it is close to home, il is cheap- er lo allend. "H is small enough that you don't gel trampled by numbers and there is SUD- posed lo be a good Fludenl- ler.cher said ona student. However, students say they heard "quite a tew nega- tive commenls" about the U of L. They also fell that the uni- versily 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- ask- f 10 g ed by telephone and ask ed lo select a group of 1 lo 12 polenlial university sludenls in Grade 12 at random, lo be interviewed about iheir plans for the -fall. have n positive altitude about the local campus. CLAKESIIOLJI Five studenls were inter- viewed, three expressed an intention to enrol at Ihc Uni- versity of Alherla while two are undecided. The undecided sludenls said they are considering Lhe U of L. However, one cxlendcd only a rcmole possibility Lo his ac- tually enrolling. The 186 sludenls were inlerviewed face to face, individually and as a group. In comparison a Gallup Poll of Canadian opinion involves aboul 850 people oul of a total pop- ufalion of more 1han 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 Ihe others, il was a case of the courses they want- ed nol being available locally or a feeling thai Ihe stand- ards at Ihe U of L r.re not as high as in Edmonton. CHOIVSNEST PASS Supporl for the University of Lelhbridge is practically non-cxislanl. Only one of Hi students interviewed said she was considering going lo Lhe II of L. Six arc headed for the University of Calgary wiiile two are going lo the U of A. One is undecided. "I like the whole univer- sity, and it's closer lo home." said Ihe single U of L sup- porler. One sludenl said Lelhbridge was recommended by a coun- sellor because of ils educa- tion faculty. The majority ol the stu- dents in the Crowsnesl Pass region regard Ihc U of C as "their university.'1 The lack of courses and facilities al the U of L has lurncd sonic students off. Students also felt the U of A and the U of C have done a better job of keeping them informed. "The oilier universities have been here but no one from Ihe University of Lcth- bridge has ever been here commented one slu- denl. "lieally, we heard much ol anylhing ab.jul the L' of L." IMNCIIKP. CHEEK Two of JO sludenls inler- viewrd said they are planning lo allend the University of Lcthbridgc. Two others indi- cated they are still consider- ini! Ihe U of L. The remainder arc tplil among the U of A. the I" of C. SAIT and Ihe University of Urilish Columbia. "1 could tind a job easier in Lcthbridge bill 1 would to transfer lo Calpan afler Iwo years because Ihcy flon'l offer a full commerce program in said one sludent. Another student who has applied lo the U of L said, "I don't really want to RO there. I just applied in ca.se I can'l gel into the Univer- sity of Calgary."
