For participating in this year’s New to UBC survey in August, three lucky students received several hundred dollars worth of travel vouchers on Monday.
All new students registered in undergraduate degree programs are invited to complete the annual New to UBC survey, which has been administered at both UBC campuses since 2009. Every survey response is entered into a draw for the vouchers.
The survey aims to develop a better understanding of the experience of entering UBC as a new or transfer student.
This year, new to UBC students Adina Clark and Lauren Marshall won $250 travel vouchers, and Cici Wang won a $500 voucher.
Last year’s survey results helped improve the New to UBC website and communications strategy, make changes to the course registration system, and helped shape the First-Year Experience Program at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
This year, the New to UBC Survey was sent out to 1,783 direct-entry and 457 transfer students. 54% of those solicited completed the survey.
