SERU survey: UF students happy with campus experience

Even if UF students aren't satisfied with their academic experience, at least they enjoy the atmosphere.

The 2011 Student Experience in the Research University survey showed UF ranked second of eight participating peer universities in student satisfaction with the social experience and with a feeling of belonging at the campus.

However, UF ranked fifth in students' satisfaction with their academic experience.

UF had the highest SERU response rate at 63 percent, 26 percentage points higher than the next-highest, the University of Southern California.

Jen Day Shaw, assistant vice president of student affairs and dean of students, said the reason for the high response rate was UF's marketing strategies, which included tying season football ticket registration to completion of the survey.

Marketing SERU to students is important because the data gives insight into the state of the undergraduate Student Body, Shaw said.

The survey was designed to identify effective academic practices on campus and areas for improvement.

"If you're going to complain, make sure your voice is heard," she said. "Make sure you fill it out."
