College students are an interesting field to research because our generation is unique due to our busy, technological cultures. I came across this company that surveys and produces data about from students. So what is the National Survey of Student Engagment? The NSSE conducts surveys from four year college and universities "about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development." Their survey results provide an insight to how undergraduates spend their time and what they have gained from their own college experience.
The surveys provide insight for colleges and universities to see how their students are feeling about their experience and how students are spending their time around campus. Ultimately, this survey helps colleges improve their work to cater to the students are feeling about their college experience.
Also, these results can also be used by prospecting students, counselors, parents, advisers, etc. More than 1400 colleges and universities use NSSE data. Understanding and utilizing data is crucial for university success.
