This year Villanova University is participating in a national study conducted by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at the University of California, Los Angeles. Graduating seniors will receive an email from ‘CollegeSeniorSurvey at DataRecognitionCorp’ with a link directly to the College Senior Survey. The web survey will be available for approximately three weeks. Please complete the survey at your earliest convenience once you have received notification to do so.
Graduating Seniors who have not completed the survey will receive follow-up emails with the subject title of "A reminder to complete Villanova’s Senior Survey."
The reminder email includes a link to the College Senior Survey. Please check your emails or past emails for this link to the survey with your personalized survey id and password.
The online survey will be available until midnight, May 13th. After that time the survey only will be available as a paper survey. Those who did not complete the survey online will be asked to complete a paper survey at Cap & Gown distribution.
Part II - The Senior Survey: Career Center, Placement Statistics
Part II of the Senior Survey is administered online each year by the Career Center to learn more about the career choices made by Villanova graduates. Specifically, the survey is designed to identify the numbers of students who are employed, seeking employment and going to graduate school within six months of graduation. This survey also assists the Career Center in assessing the initial salary levels offered in various fields and in various cities. This information is helpful to the Career Center staff in counseling and advising students and alumni, and provides valuable insight for faculty, students and parents about the wide range of opportunities currently available to Villanova students.
Graduating Seniors are asked to complete Part II of the Senior Survey online prior to Cap and Gown distribution.
Why the University asks for your participation
Villanova faculty, staff and administrators are committed to a process of continually working to enhance the experiences of students and improve university processes and the services we provide. In turn, we regularly seek to collect feedback from students in order to help us assess the University's academic programs, encourage open communication between students and the colleges and University, and evaluate the student experience both in and outside of the classroom. The input of graduating seniors is particularly important in this regard. Your feedback will provide Villanova with the opportunity to examine its programs and practices, and improve the educational and overall experience of future students. All responses to the Senior Survey will remain confidential.
