USD Health Survey- Pencil Us In

This is the final week for the USD Health Survey. Students have only a few days left to add their input to health issues on our campus. Please continue to encourage students to complete the USD Health Survey.

Student participation in this survey will provide university administrators with current, relevant data about students’ health and the information will be used to enhance campus-wide health promotion and prevention services. Five participants will win $100 in cash. For more information regarding this survey please contact the Center for Health and Wellness Promotion.  

Thank you for helping the Student Wellness staff encourage student involvement.
