Lakeland students are overwhelmingly happy with their on-campus living experience, according to results from a recent large-scale in-house survey.
90 percent of the respondents agreed with the statement, "Overall, I am satisfied with my on-campus living experience."
More than 500 of the 600 students who live on campus completed the survey, which was comprised of 32 questions about all facets of residence life.
Some of the highest marks went to Lakeland's resident assistants (RAs), who drew the highest percentage of favorable responses (95 percent) for the statement, "I feel my RA is available when I need her/him."
Other highlights from the annual survey included:
- 93 percent of the respondents are confident their RAs can handle situations.
- 93 percent feel safe in their living areas.
- 90 percent feel compatible with their roommates.
The majority of students who completed the survey also indicated that living on campus has helped them learn about different cultures; that alcohol use on campus is not disruptive; that they are confident in campus security's ability to handle emergencies; and that they are able to sleep without interruption and study in their room without being disturbed.
