Encourage graduating seniors to take the Senior Survey| April 23, 2014
The campus needs your help to encourage graduating seniors to complete a 10-question survey that takes less than three minutes and will provide valuable information about their post-graduation plans. The results will help Binghamton University better understand the characteristics and the pathways students choose.
Individual schools are doing their part in "competing" for the highest response rate from their graduates. The campus is working to surpass last year’s overall response rate of 73 percent and President Harvey Stenger is pushing for 100 percent participation.
Encourage any graduating seniors you know to respond to the e-mail message asking them to complete the survey. More info about the survey is available online
