A Study of the Teachers College Students Who are Regularly Employed
by Roy N. Anderson - 1930
IF ONE chances to make the rounds of Columbia's campus at night he will see many classrooms lighted and will find practically as many students on the campus then as in the daytime. This condition inspired a casual survey of the catalogue of Teachers College to ascertain how many courses are offered in the evening. It was found that 43 per cent of the courses (1927-28) are offered after 4 P.M. and on Saturday. Since such a large number of courses is offered at these hours it would seem that the personnel of Teachers College might contain a large number of part-time students who are engaged in a full-time job. In order to substantiate this opinion and to discover how large the group really is, a study was undertaken to find out the number of students attending Teachers College who were holding full-time positions while pursuing their academic activities.
