THATCHER, AZ—Five lucky Eastern Arizona College students were randomly selected to receive a 160 GB Apple iPod for their participation in the College’s Student Satisfaction Survey. The survey, administered by the College’s Institutional Research Office, was offered online during the last three weeks of the spring semester.

The five iPod winners were among the 1,153 students that took the survey, representing a phenomenal 22% return rate. All current EAC students—both part-time and full-time—were invited to share their opinions about the College. The College’s executive administration will use the results of the survey to find out students’ perceptions about what works and what doesn’t at the school.

“The survey wraps up an ongoing project on assessment in the spirit of academic quality improvement,” said EAC Provost Jeanne Bryce. “This type of feedback is vital to the success of EAC’s program offerings and the support services we provide students.” The winners were Rion Ramirez of Safford, Kathryn Johnson of Thatcher, Alease Moore of Thatcher, Vail Holdman of Thatcher, and Lisa VanWinkle of Safford.
