I know surveys can get really annoying, but they also have their perks! For example, I have recently been getting a ton of emails about completing surveys that often have incentives, which is great because who in their right mind doesn't love free stuff?!
A lot of the surveys are from the college bookstores, student organizations in addition to outside sources, and organizations that are interested in knowing student opinions about their campus. Another advantage to completing surveys is also getting your voice heard.
Recently I completed a survey for the NSSE (National Survey of Student Evaluation) which entered me in a upcoming drawing in April for an iPad 2! For completing the survey I automatically received a coupon for an ice cream place close to campus called Hartzell's. I was also a winner in one of the many drawings in which I got a t-shirt, so keep your eyes peeled for the incentives you can get after completing surveys in addition to getting your voice heard!
