Students Can Provide Feedback About U of A for 'Top Colleges' Survey
Current students and recent graduates of the U of A have an opportunity to share their voice about their experience at the U of A with the Wall Street Journal.
Those interested are encouraged to fill out a short survey from the publication providing feedback that will go towards an annual college ranking.
The Wall Street Journal/College Pulse rankings are aimed at providing guidance to prospective students and their families across the nation, while at the same time recognizing the institutions doing an outstanding job in higher education.
The student experience will be at the heart of the ranking, which will publish in September 2023 and is expected to have a wide variety of institutions participating.
The survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and should be completed in one sitting. Topics will range from classroom and social experience to community and athletic event satisfaction. All answers will be considered anonymous and only requires a valid university email address or LinkedIn profile for verification.
