2018 Survey of New Students

September 12, 2018

Help us get the word out to new UC Berkeley undergraduates about the Survey of New Students (SONS), which launched on September 5th. SONS is administered each fall and provides data that supports our campus's understanding of the student experience for our newest group of undergraduates. SONS helps us to understand topics that range from students' perceptions of the campus climate for diversity and inclusion, to students' experiences accessing courses. SONS is also increasingly being used as an opportunity to assess the housing and food (in)security of our students.

Please encourage the Fall 2018 new UC Berkeley undergraduates in your life to complete SONS today! The survey will remain open through October 7th and can be accessed via CalNet Authentication at: https://sons.berkeley.edu.
