Thanks to all of the SP14 seniors who completed our Senior Exit Survey!

The following three students (we had a total of 151 respondents) were randomly selected to win a $75 gift card for taking the time to complete our Spring 2014 Exit Survey:

  • Yvette T.
  • Marcella P.
  • Sahana A.

The prize-winners will be notified via their UCSD email addresses.

Please tell other SP14 grads, who have not yet taken the survey, to respond.  We will keep the survey open through July, as we want feedback from our SP14 seniors. While no additional gift cards will be awarded, feedback from our graduates is incredibly valuable to the Department and the undergraduate program!

Check back in fall for exit results!
