Antonio Figueroa (third year, Health Science major) was excited to receive his prize on Friday, June 8, after being randomly selected as the winner of an iPad upon completing the Old Westbury 2012 SGA Student Life Satisfaction Survey.
Student Government Association President, Robert Hammarberg, put together a student satisfaction survey to gather feedback about improvements that could be made on the Old Westbury campus. The survey was comprised of 20 questions discussing topics ranging from on campus dining to accessing student pride. It was sent out to all 4,698 students of NYIT-Old Westbury and open for a period of two weeks. An astounding 1,229 students responded by the time the survey closed.
Students who participated in the survey had the option of entering themselves in a drawing to win a brand new iPad. Antonio Figueroa was randomly selected as the winner. When Antonio came to retrieve his prize, he stated how he was happy to take part in the survey. There is a hefty amount of data and comments to analyze, which President Hammarberg has already begun to do and looks forward to making changes suggested by student participants over the next year in his second term as SGA President. He would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey!
