Linda Arevalo is the third and final winner of an iPod for participating in the Canadian Graduate and Professional Student Survey (CGPSS).
Arevalo, an MBA student, won the last of three iPods in the contest, which was open to graduate students who participated in the survey.
The other winners were Amanda Kirkwood, a master's student in Applied Health Sciences, and Kirk Stokes, an MA student in Psychology.
The CGPSS survey is part of the accountability framework within which Ontario universities operate. It asks students about their graduate school experiences including satisfaction levels with programs and services as well as support and opportunities for research.
"The feedback we receive from students is integral to identifying our strengths and weaknesses in graduate education," says Marilyn Rose, Dean, Faculty of Graduate Studies. "This is an opportunity for students to make a difference to our future graduate community - we just need about 20 minutes of their time."
Brock first participated in the survey in 2007 - the report from the analysis of the 2007 survey can be viewed online.
