Students give Bryan top ratings on national survey
December 14, 2009
Bryan College students are more satisfied with their college experience than are their counterparts at other four-year private schools, a national survey again has found.
For the 12th year Bryan has participated in the Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory of students at private institutions. This year, 253,294 students at 368 schools responded.
“Since the first year Bryan participated in this survey, findings have been unmistakably clear that our students’ rankings have exceeded on average the way that students in other CCCU and four-year private colleges rank their institutions.“ Dr. Ken Froemke, Bryan's accreditation liaison said.

Responsiveness to Diverse Populations
Safety and Security
Overall, when Bryan students responded to the question “if you had to do it over, would you enroll here again?” Bryan’s score was 6.29 compared with 5.21 for other institutions.
“One of the reasons we administer the Noel-Levitz survey is to find an objective measure of what students think about their Bryan experience,” Mr. Sapienza said. “We want students to have a positive experience, so the survey results help us know where to focus our attention to continue to achieve that goal.”
