What Freshman Want Faculty to Know

In this episode of Common Grounds, we reveal the results of a survey sent out to all incoming freshman about what they want faculty at JSU to know about them and their goals for the upcoming year and their time here.

In this episode, we discuss:
  • The statistics related to incoming freshman for the semester
  • How the survey was distributed and the questions it contained
  • Demographics of the respondents
  • A summary of some of the most common, surprising, and thought-provoking responses
  • How faculty can take the responses into consideration in their interactions with freshman
  • The Umbrella Alliance student organization
