If you're a current student, then you are probably well aware of the annual survey we, in the Multnomah administration, conduct called the "Student Satisfaction Survey". Our goal is to get an idea for how we're doing in serving our students so that we can learn what we're doing well and where we're falling short. (And then do something about it!)
This year we had a great response! Out of 891 total survey invitations sent, 364 of you completed the survey - that's a 41% response rate - which is really high!
(If you did not receive an invitation to take the survey in your email, then you should check to ensure that the address Multnomah uses for you is the one you check - and then check your spam box to make sure it wasn't blocked - but it would only help for next year, maybe...)
To thank our survey-takers we offered two prize drawings - an iPod Touch for those who completed the survey before Thanksgiving Break, and an iPod Shuffle for everyone who didn't win the first prize, but still completed the survey by the deadline on 12/2/09 (including the ones before Thanksgiving).
We did two blind drawings from all who qualified - there was a 1 in 364 chance of winning one of the prizes.
Our students mean so much to us - you all turn in to Alumni, and then we all get to hear of the amazing things God does through your life after you leave this place too! Telling us how we're doing on these surveys helps us to serve you better and to fulfill our mission in this world...
