dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to provide quantitative data on members' opinions toward a university health promotion program. A survey research approach was used. A systematic sample of one-half of the Lifestyle Enhancement Center (LeClub) student membership list at Indiana State University was selected to participate in the study. Of the 667 questionnaires mailed, three hundred four subjects completed the questionnaire. The mean age of the subjects was 21 years. One hundred sixty eight subjects (55.5%) strongly agreed that they are receiving their money's worth at LeClub. Current LeClub members felt very strongly or agreed they would recommend LeClub to others (96.7%).T-tests and ANOVA were used to test the hypotheses. No statistically significant difference was found between males and females, among students of varying academic standing, and between new and prior members regarding opinions toward LeClub. A significant difference was found between various levels of participation and opinions regarding a health promotion program (P < 0.01). Those who used the facility the most had the strongest and most positive opinions towards the program.
