A State Fair Community College student has won $100 in a drawing for participating in Student Watch™, a national research project sponsored by the NACS Foundation, a subsidiary of the National Association of College Stores.
The Student Watch™ was conducted online through the SFCC Campus Store in February. As an incentive, one student at each participating campus was selected to win $100, and one student from the total number of participants was selected to win $1,000.
On April 8, Polly Grapes, SFCC Campus Store director, presented sophomore education major Blaine Folsom, Stover, with the check from NACS.
More than 12,000 students from 20 campuses across the U.S. participated in the study that gauged college students’ attitudes and behaviors concerning course materials, online learning and technology. More than 800 SFCC students took the survey.
“We are pleased to take part in this national research,” said Grapes. “On a local level, the results of the survey will help our store track textbook spending, monitor how students acquire course content and evaluate fall term buyback.”
NACS, based in Oberlin, Ohio, is a professional trade association with nearly 3,000 members representing a $10 billion collegiate retail industry.
