  • Wednesday, October 5 from 3:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M.  


Win a FREE Xbox 360 250GB With Kinect


We value your feedback and constructive suggestions regarding your living environment and your Community Advisor (CA).



Shortly, all floor members will receive two electronic surveys sent to your Minnesota State Mankato email account.

1.  A very short CA and floor feedback survey.

2. A little longer survey about your experience living in a residence hall.

These surveys focus on many areas of your residence hall experience.  While we hope you indicate you are satisfied with most areas of your experience living on campus this year, we look forward to hearing from you about the areas we can improve. 

When you enter the EBI survey, you will have a chance to win a free Xbox 360!

In addition, the floor in each residence community with the highest completion percentage of both surveys will win a $100 pizza party from Residential Life! Your observations are important factors in recognizing the positive contributions of CAs and helping them improve in areas that impact you and your living community.





A Special Thank You to the Residence Hall Association for Sponsoring
 a Great Family Carnival.
