In the spring of every third year, the College Student Experience Questionnaire (CSEQ) is administered to a cross-section of USC students. The CSEQ is a national survey from Indiana University which gathers background information on students and provides the Division of Student and Alumni Services with a summary of the academic and extracurricular activities in which students engage while at USC. The CSEQ is distributed and collected by instructors in selected classes.
