The College Student Experience at the University of Virginia

In order to gain a better understanding of the student experience at the University of Virginia, the Office of the Dean of Students administered the College Student Experiences Questionnaire (CSEQ) during spring of 2003 to a random sample of 1,500 students.

The CSEQ measures student quality of effort toward campus resources and opportunities for learning and development, student opinions about the priorities and emphases of the campus environment, and student self-reported progress toward a diverse range of educational outcomes.

743 usable surveys were returned, yielding a 49.5% response rate. The data were weighted by race and gender to reflect the fall 2002 UVA population. The findings from the CSEQ are broken down into five main categories: (1) Extra-curricular Involvement; (2) Community Service; (3) Diversity; (4) Honor; (5) Faculty/Student Interaction.
