Mid-Semester Survey

The Mid-Semester Survey has been sent out via email by Kendria Mason, coordinator of First-Year Experiences. The purpose of this survey is to provide data on how students are perceiving their FYE courses. This will provide feedback on how the First-Year Experiences program can continue to improve the student experience.
