Quality-of-College-Life Survey

The Quality-of-College-Life Survey is a standardized survey that have been administered at many colleges and universities in the U.S. and other countries to assess the level of quality of college life.

The Theoretical Model

Satisfaction with college life is construed to be determined by two major factors, namely satisfaction with academic aspects and satisfaction with social aspects. In turn, both satisfaction with academic aspects and satisfaction with social aspects are influenced by satisfaction with facilities and services.
