Many students have stated that the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown measures made it difficult for them to fully engage with on-campus life. Even now, registered student organizations, sporting events and other recreational campus activities potentially appear to not have reached pre-2020 attendance levels.

Understanding this, Group Three of the Honors Collaborative Research course (HNRS 486) would like to gauge student opinions, firstly on the best way to reach them, and secondarily on their opinions on their own experience with campus engagement.

Those interested can take the group’s survey. It should take under five minutes to complete, and it will close on Dec. 1.
