Congratulations to Jonathan Dingwell, fourth-year business student who took home the $500 grand prize in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). The draw took place on Thursday, April 10. 

A big thank you to all first - and fourth-year students who participated. UPEI received a response rate of 56%! For those students who have not yet had the chance to complete the survey, it will remain open until early June, so responses are still welcome. Check your UPEI email account today to complete the survey.

Once again, congratulations to the following students who received $100 early bird prizes: Jacquelyn Black, fourth-year arts; Aaron Rainnie, first-year nursing; Jimmie Mayaleh, fourth-year business; Hannah Povey, fourth-year arts; Marilyn McFadden, first-year arts; Wallace Nnane, first-year arts; Abbie Ronalds, first-year science; and Danielle Perry, fourth-year nursing.

NSSE survey results are compiled for institutions and provide them with the opportunity to identify aspects of the undergraduate experience (inside and outside of the classroom) that can be improved through policy changes and best practices. The results are also beneficial to prospective students, their parents, university counselors, academic advisors, institutional research officers, and researchers to learn more about how students spend their time and what they gain from their experiences.

More than 1,500 institutions in the U.S. and Canada have participated in NSSE since it was first administered in 2000.
