From Sunday, Sept. 24 to Thursday, Sept. 28, The Dartmouth fielded an online survey of Dartmouth undergraduates on their opinions of different aspects of the College. The survey was sent out to 4,418 students through their school email addresses. Six hundred seventy-seven responses were recorded, making for a 15.3 percent response rate. Using administrative data from the College’s Office of Institutional Research and other sources, responses were first weighted by Greek affiliation for all eligible students, then weighted by class year, gender, race/ethnicity and international student status for all students. Iterative post-stratification, or raking, was the method used for weighting. Survey results have a margin of error +/- 3.
