Spring Student Survey

Your voice matters! Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in the Spring Student Survey. Your feedback helps to make our programs and services better by letting us know what is working well and where we can improve and provide more support. We are not always able to make changes right away but we are listening! Your feedback helps steer us in the right direction. Thank you.

The drawing for the iPad and other participation prizes took place on Monday, May 23, 2022. The winners have been notified.

The Academic Success Center coordinates EdTALKS, a series of brief workshops designed to provide students with the tools, skills, and strategies to gain learning confidence and get the most out of their college experience. The Spring Survey asked students for their feedback so that the ASC can continue to develop EdTALKs that are engaging, important, and relevant to student's lives.

The Spring Student Survey received 188 responses. Of those 188 respondents, 66 had attended an EdTALK and were asked to complete all EdTALK questions.

The COS Library is here to support students primarily through research help and educational opportunities; databases, books, textbooks, and other collections; computer and printer access; and study space. Your feedback lets us know how well we are meeting these goals and what we can do to improve.

We know: textbooks can be expensive. Student feedback about textbook costs will provide valuable input as instructors and the college look for ways to balance the use of quality instructional materials in the classroom with student preferences and budgets.
