Your Voice

Your Voice Matters

At Olds College, student feedback is incredibly valuable and helps to shape your school. You might think that spending 15 minutes or 45 minutes on a survey, is a waste of time. However, did you know that input from recent surveys has helped to inform the following decisions?

  • Increased availability of health & wellness services
  • Improved Olds College website and marketing materials
  • Options for residence and meal plan

This year, you’ll have four primary opportunities to provide feedback (in November, January, February and March). Below, we’ve provided the name of the survey, approximate date of the survey, and the purpose for how it will be used. Note:

  • Instructions (and incentives/contests!) will be sent to your student email address;
  • Not all students will be invited to complete every survey.
  • Collected information is confidential.
