The results are in!

A big thank you to all who responded to the survey!  We will be using the results from the survey to help with our 2016 event planning.  We have a very large and diverse alumni population in the Bay Area and our goal is to continue to increase the alumni engagement.

To respect the privacy of those who shared their contact information, we won’t be releasing the full results, but we did want to share some quick highlights from the responses.

  • We have a wide range of ages, with our 2 best represented age groups  being 25-34 year olds (27%) and those 65+ (26%)
  • We had responses from alumni as far away as Sacramento and Santa Cruz, but our 2 best represented regions are the East Bay (24%) and North Bay (21%).  You can see the detail below in chart 1.
  • 44% of respondents have never been to an alumni event, with the vast majority citing a combination of bad timing and location as the reasons why not.
  • The most popular event requests were Social Events (80%) and a Speaker Series (74%).  The full list can be found below in chart 2.
  • Email was the clear consensus as preferred communication method (100% of respondents), but there was enough interest in other methods, that we’ll continue to broadcast on many channels.
  • There was a strong preference for events to be held on Saturdays during the day (64%) and weeknights (59%); more details are below in chart 3.

As a result of these responses we are going to attempt to do more events in other areas outside of San Francisco.  Hopefully you will see event options closer to you in coming announcements!

We’re always looking for more members to join of the alumni leadership team.  In particular, we’re really underrepresented from the East Bay and San Jose areas on the committee.  If you, or someone you know, is able to contribute just a couple hours a month, we’d greatly appreciate it!
