Student Evaluation of Marist Services

We would like to know something very important from the student body: how well is Marist fulfilling your needs? The Student Evaluation of Marist Services (SEMS) 2018 gives students the opportunity to provide their honest feedback for the various services in which the school offers. SEMS will ask a series of questions on topics including: academic support, social & cultural environment, dining services, undergrad activities, graduate/adult services, and LDM accommodations. The results from the survey will be used by nearly every department to gauge how well they are satisfying needs and what they can improve on. Each student who completes the survey by April 20th will be entered in a raffle where they have a chance to win the following prizes:

  • iPad Air
  • iPad Mini
  • One of five Marist sweatshirts
  • Or a choice of one of the following: a free parking pass for anywhere on campus, 2 senior formal tickets (seniors only), or a gift card to La Madia (Florence students only)

Who: The entire Marist student body, including: undergraduates, graduates, School of Professional Program students, and LDM students

Where: Students can take SEMS through an email invitation that will be sent to their Marist Mail accounts. We recommend using a computer or tablet. 

When: The first email will be sent out on Monday, March 19, 2018, and will contain the invitation that enables students to access the survey. Four follow up emails will be sent as reminders on March 26th, April 3rd, April 9th, and April 16th. The survey will close on April 20, 2018.

Why it matters: Marist College strives to give every student the best experience they can possibly have. In order to achieve this, accurate data is needed to determine which services offered by the school are beneficial and which need to be fixed. Every opinion is crucial in fostering change because there is greater power in numbers. The more students who provide feedback of their experience with Marist services, the more accurate the data will be, thus allowing better decisions to be made.
