The University of Hawaiʻi Bookstore System is currently participating in Student Watch, a national research initiative that gauges college student attitudes and behaviors concerning course materials, online learning and technology.

The second Student Watch survey this academic year is active now through March 20 at

Each UH student that completes the survey will be entered into a national contest to win $1,000. One respondent from each UH campus will also win a $50 UH Bookstore gift card.

Student Watch is funded by the NACS Foundation, a subsidiary of the National Association of College Stores.

“We are excited to take part in this national research initiative,” said Tricia Ejima, UH Bookstores interim director. “On a local level, the results of the survey will help our nine bookstores better meet student needs and evaluate our performance.”

More about the survey

The study is being conducted on more than 60 campuses across the U.S. and Canada, with a focus on helping college stores better understand the evolution of course materials, how they can best support their students and how technology and online learning will play a role in the future of higher education.
