Eagle Dining at Southern Miss Conducting Survey on Lifestyles, Preferences

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -  The following is a news release from the University of Southern Mississippi:

Students, faculty and staff at The University of Southern Mississippi have until Nov. 7 to complete an annual dining services survey sponsored by Eagle Dining that could lead to significant prizes.

Eagle Dining is conducting the survey to better understand the lifestyle and preferences of Southern Miss students, faculty and staff. This provides an opportunity for the entire Southern Miss Community to share feedback on their dining experience.

To show appreciation for survey responses, respondents have the option to be entered in a sweepstakes for a chance to win either the grand prize of a $150 Visa Gift Card or one of three $50 Visa Gift Cards.

“As the food service provider, we are in the business of delivering quality food and a great dining experience at a value,” said Eagle Dining Marketing Manager LaShana Sorrell. “Creating that perfect balance takes a lot of work. With responses from the DiningStyles survey, we are able to have a better understanding of what students, faculty and staff desire from Eagle Dining.”

The Fall 2013 DiningStyles survey discovered that out of 658 respondents, 95 percent found their overall experience to be average or above. Of that number, 47 percent of the respondents rated the overall experience at the location they visit most often as “excellent.” Based on prior surveys, a few examples of what Eagle Dining was able to implement includes providing nutritional information at dining locations and menu item changes.

“Our goal is to maintain excellence in all of our locations and the only way we can do this is through increased feedback,” Sorrell said. “So we want to capture 1000 or more respondents this year.”

Students, faculty and staff can stop by tables outside the Fresh Food Co. to complete the survey or complete the survey any time online at www.college-survey/southernmiss.
