National Survey to Tally T-Bird Study Habits

February 04, 2013

Always seeking to improve the SUU experience, University administrators are conducting an online survey beginning Tuesday, February 5, which will ask freshmen and seniors to evaluate their study habits inside and outside the classroom.

The survey, administered by the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) organization, is a national survey given to students at colleges and universities of every size to evaluate study habits over the course of one’s college career by comparing the academic routines and successes of freshmen and seniors.

At SUU, all freshmen and seniors will receive an email from SUU Provost Bradley Cook on Tuesday, February 5, which will direct them to the NSSE online survey. The subject line of the NSSE email will read, “SUU is Seeking Your Feedback.”

The survey should take no more that 15 minutes, and students who complete the survey by May 1 will be entered into a drawing for a Google Nexus tablet, worth $250.

The purpose of the NSSE survey is to glean possible improvements inside and outside the classroom that will be beneficial for all students. Every opinion matters, and University administrators ask that students take their time to appropriately answer each question.

Christian Reiner, director of institutional research and assessment, explains that beyond helping University administrators and faculty better understand the realities of students’ academic lives at SUU, “This information is also used by prospective college students, their parents and college advisors to learn more about how students spend their time at different universities and what students gain from their experiences.”

If you are a current SUU freshman or senior and  have already completed the survey, thank you. If not, please check you inbox for the NSSE survey email from Provost Cook.
