Student attitudes and habits relating to course materials will be the focus of a campus–wide survey conducted by the Saints Bookstore.

The survey is a part of Student Watch ™, a national research project sponsored by the NACS Foundation, a subsidiary of the National Association of College Stores (NACS). Student Watch™ provides insight into college student consumer behaviors.

“We are very pleased to take part in this national research initiative,” said Jerri Lynn Lyddon, director. “On a local level, the results of the survey will help our store better meet the needs of our customers and evaluate the mix of products and services we offer.”

The survey will be conducted online through the bookstore via surveys beginning October 1, 2007. One student from Seward County Community College will win $100 for participating and one student from all entries will take home $500.
