SUBJECT:    UC San Diego Student Retail Survey - Complete Survey for Chance to Win iPad Air2 or $100 UC San Diego Bookstore Gift Card

Dear UC San Diego Students,

You should have received an email dated April 6, 2015 inviting you to complete the UC San Diego Student Retail Survey. We would like to thank those of you who have completed the survey. If you have not yet completed it, you still have time. Your responses are a vital part of our being able to review retail services provided on campus.

UC San Diego is evaluating its strategy for providing retail, dining, and entertainment services to students, staff, faculty and visitors. Expansion plans by neighboring shopping centers, the growth of on-line shopping, and the imminent opening of two light rail stations on campus, necessitate careful planning of future retail, dining and entertainment services at UC San Diego.

As part of this process, the university is collecting information from students, staff and faculty about their preferences for retail, dining, and entertainment services. Your participation in a brief survey would greatly benefit the planning and development of these services on campus.

To take the survey, click on the following link:

Your responses to the survey will be kept confidential and only reported in aggregate. As an incentive for completing the survey, you may enter in a random drawing to win an iPad Air 2 or one of eight $100 UC San Diego Bookstore gift cards. You will be notified by e-mail if you are one of the winners. I encourage anyone who has not completed the survey to do so and submit it by Thursday, April 30, 2015.

If you have questions about the survey, please contact Gary Ratcliff, Assistant Vice Chancellor-Student Life, at or (858) 534-4672. Thank you for your time.
