2019 CUSC Survey of First Year Students

Each year, CBU looks for student feedback through student surveys.  This year, we are participating in a survey of first year students prepared by the Canadian University Survey Consortium (CUSC) and administered by Prairie Research Associates Inc (PRA).

On January 30, 2019, first year students will receive an email message from “PRA on behalf of Cape Breton University”, inviting them to participate in this important initiative. Those who complete the survey by March 14, 2019 will be automatically entered in a random drawing to win their choice of a 3-credit tuition waiver or $500. Those who complete prior to February 14, 2019, will be entered into a draw to win a $100 Ultimate Dining Card early-bird prize. In addition, for every survey completed, a $1 donation will be made to the CBU food bank.

For the purposes of this survey, a first year student is defined as a student registered for courses in both the fall and winter terms, has no prior university or college experience, and is enrolled in the first year of an undergraduate bachelor’s program.
