dc.description.abstractThis study used the Quality of Life survey distributed in 1998, 2000, and 2002 to determine whether or not there was a significant difference in the perceptions of the students living in the residence halls with regard to their residency. Additionally, the 2002 survey results were analyzed for differences in perceptions based upon gender. The Qualiyy of Life survey was distributed annually by the Office of Residence Life to all students living in the residenoe halls at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. It was discovered that no statistical difference existed (p <0.05) between the perceptions of male and female residents for four out of the five variables. In the second part of the study, it was found that a statistical difference did exist (p <0.05) between the perceptions of residents during the years of 1998, 2000, and 2002 for 4 out of the 5 variables. Continued investigation is important in areas such as the perceptions of the students by year in school, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, and specific living environment.
