Every two years we conduct an online first-year student survey. The survey is administered several weeks into the academic year, after new students have had the chance to settle in to university life. The goal is to learn more about new students' needs and expectations.
Topics covered in this survey include:
- Future career goals
- Anticipated course of study and expectations of the program
- Initial experiences with service centers and other resources for students
By using a standard set of questions, we can compare data collected in different years. This enables us to notice changes, discern developments, and respond accordingly when necessary.
