GT SGA Academic Advising Survey Spring 2015

Hello,

My name is Brandie Banner and I am the outgoing Student Body Vice President. Academic advisors play an important role in Tech students' academic success. SGA is surveying students to see how we can improve the advising process for everyone.

Can you please circulate the blurb below to your students? After a few weeks we will send you the results of the survey if you are interested as well!

SGA is gathering information about the quality of academic advising students receive at Tech. Take a break from studying to give us your valuable feedback!

Thanks!
