Student Government Association transporataion survery available online


The Student Government Association Marshall University Student Transportation Survey is available for students in the Memorial Student Center.

SGA has a table in the MSC this week that started Monday and will conclude Thursday. The survey is available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Different SGA senators will monitor the table and help students with any questions they have while taking the survey.

As of Monday morning, approximately 550 students had taken the survey. SGA has a goal set for 700 students to take the survey.

The survey’s purpose is to provide more information on what students would want out of a bus system, so SGA members can implement as much of what the students want as they can.

SGA senator Barkley Castro said other SGA members have been encouraging students walking on the plaza to come in and take the survey.

As a way to encourage students to take the survey, a winner will be drawn for a $50 giftcard for the Marshall University Bookstore. In order for students to be in the drawing for the gift card, they need to answer “yes” for the last question and insert their Marshall email address.

The deadline for the survey is Thursday and the winner of the gift card to the bookstore will be drawn Monday.

Senior chemistry major Miranda Kimble said the survey was easy to take and said she feels SGA will receive useful feedback from it.

“The bus system is something I believe the university needs not only to help students get around Huntington, but also to protect their safety,” Kimble said. “I stopped by the Student Center between classes today and completed the survey in about five minutes. I think it is important for students to take the survey and to take is seriously so SGA can provide a bus system that fits the desires of what we (the students) would like to see on campus.”

The results for the survey are not anonymous, however, students’ information will not be released and will be used only by the members of SGA.

The survey is available to all Marshall students on the SGA Twitter account.
