Each year during the first week of school, the Student Life office asks our 1L’s to complete a brief survey about their experience with New Student Orientation. The survey serves as a tool to help us refine the NSO experience and also gives us a small glimpse into the makeup of the class. To entice the students toward strong participation, we create a friendly competition across the sections involving response rate.
This year Section C was the winner with a response rate somewhere around 80%. As a way to thank them, Dean Sturgeon and I brought 6 dozen boxes of Crispy Creme donuts and dropped them off just at the end of Professor Ogden’s Civil Procedure class. As you can image, we were greeted warmly (I think there were even applause).
It’s always fun to be able to be at Pepperdine but the chance to put a smile on students faces is certainly one of the best parts of our day!
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
