CSA COVID-19 Student Survey

The purpose of this survey is to collect updated student experiences in light of COVID-19 and determine how students could be better supported now and into the future.

Your input will help us better understand the college student experience with COVID-19 and make your voice heard, by advocating for increased support and resources to help students overcome the effects of this pandemic. As such, this data may be utilized for advocacy purposes via social media, press releases, or other publications, but will be kept anonymous.

By participating in this survey, you will have the chance to win one of two $25 Amazon gift cards. Instructions will be available at the end of the survey. Please note, only respondents from CSA member schools will be eligible for the draw.

This survey is completely voluntary, it will be kept anonymous, and should take under 10 minutes.
