We would like to apologize for the error that prevented any alumni that graduated before 1980 from taking the survey.  This was not our intention and we have since resolved this issue.  Included in this e-mail is a link to the new survey with the corrections.  We thank you for your patience and are excited by your eagerness to assist the University. 

The link below will direct you to the survey form.  The survey has a password to ensure that each person only takes the survey once.  Your responses to the survey will be combined with those of other respondents and reported anonymously and only as summarized data.  This data will be used to improve the experience at William Paterson University for current and future students, as well as your experience as a William Paterson alumnus.

As a special thank you for participating in our survey, you will have the opportunity to enter a free drawing for an Apple iPad or a Kindle Fire. In order to maintain your anonymity, you may enter the drawing after you have submitted your responses. Please follow the instructions that will appear at the end of the survey. Your drawing entry will not be linked to your survey responses in any way. 

We truly value your comments and ideas and thank you in advance for taking the time to respond.

On behalf of our entire William Paterson University family, I wish you all the best.
