Erik Cabrera (first year, Computer Science major) was excited to receive his prize on Monday, April 22, after being randomly selected as the winner of an iPad Mini upon completing the Old Westbury 2013 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 32 questions discussing topics ranging from on assessing student pride, SGA satisfaction, event participation and faculty connectivity. It was sent out to all 3,443 students of NYIT-Old Westbury and open for a period of two weeks. 777 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. Erik Cabrera was randomly selected as the winner. When Erik 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 will prepare for the next SGA President to take on. He looks forward to seeing the changes suggested by student participants over the next come to life. President Hammarberg would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey and encourages everyone to look out for next year’s spring survey!
