Title: Student Perceptions of Parkland College
Author(s): Gernenz, Heather
Subject(s): community college perceptions media
Abstract: What are students’ initial perceptions of Parkland College before attending? What influenced these perceptions of Parkland? Did these perceptions influence the student’s decision to attend Parkland? I used surveys, observations and interviews for my ethnographic data. I had great success with my survey responses because I sent them out to so many people. I found that a majority of students had a negative perception of parkland college and that their perceptions came from the media, family and friends.
