Abstract

Students’ satisfaction data helps in making curriculum more effective and
responsive. The researchers saw the need to conduct an exit survey for institutional
improvement; hence, this study was conceptualized. The study assessed the college
life experiences, satisfaction, and estimated gains which measured the skills and
competencies developed during the university students’ stay at the Adventist
University of the Philippines (AUP). The exit survey was yearly administered to
graduating seniors for three consecutive years with a total number of 152, 138, and
130, respectively during the school year 2014-2015, 2015-2016, and 2016-
2017. Using descriptive statistics, results revealed that the graduating seniors for
three consecutive years have good and commendable college life experiences in
terms of academic learning and students-faculty interaction. However, the
graduating seniors perceived that they have faircollege life experiences in terms of
co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The satisfaction level of the
administrative, academic, and support services is moderate. The level
of gainsacquired by the graduating seniors is very high for three consecutive
years. The degree of satisfaction of the graduating seniors in their quality of vertical
and horizontal relationship is high. The practical implications of the findings and
possible future research directions were identified in this study.
