Abstract

This report describes various aspects of an educational psychology internship undertaken at the College of the North Atlantic from September to December of 1997 in St. John's, NF, Canada. Aspects include a statement of goals and objectives followed by a description of activities and personal reflections indicating how well these goals and objectives were met during the internship. The research component focussed on the degree of satisfaction that second year students experienced with Counselling Services. The findings suggest that overall students are satisfied with the present state of operations at the College. However, issues of increased awareness need to be addressed on a campus-wide basis. It was found in this sample that the demographic effects of gender, program type, and GPA did not show any statistically significant differences between users and non-users of Counselling Services. However, a significant difference was found between age categories and usage of Counselling Services, in that older students reported using aspects of Counselling Services more than younger students. Recommendations and suggestions for future research are provided. The Student Satisfaction Survey and 46 references are included.
