With surveymonkey free Basic plan, you can create and send a survey with up to 10 questions or elements (including question types, descriptive text, or images) within a matter of minutes and view up to 100 responses per survey.
Yes, I created the survey and while I admit I don't have a lot of academic background on how to do a "scientific" poll, this is absolutely no different than the shortened polls people routinely put on Crossports. I have done similar polls/surveys for my Classmates and shared the results, as appropriate, with staff/administrators at Holy Cross. I used to work with a guy who ran surveys and opinion polls professionally and I suppose I could have run this by him first. I chose not to do so.
As for "slant," I did my best to be as objective as possible and if there is a "slant" it is towards Holy Cross as you will note that in the answer choices, I tried to put the most positive answer for HC/administrators first. Frankly, this was to try to counter-balance my own acknowledged bias on some of the issues.
Feel free not to participate as you are always free not to participate in a Crossports survey too.
The reason I did this was mostly to satisfy my own curiosity if there was any common ground among posters. I thought others might share the same curiosity.
And, yes, Rob, the choices on some questions are limited. Partially on purpose because Survey Monkey always says, the longer the survey and the more choices, the less participation. People tend to want to crank their answers out quickly. That's why I added an "other/specify" answer.
I will shut this down within 2 weeks, sooner if things appear to have reached a natural end.
I will share the results here when closed for anyone who is interested.

Agree with ihoop. I imagine most of the voices around these parts will have a similar viewpoint, which may not be as reflective as all alums. Remember, we are crazy for discussing the success — and lack thereof — of HC athletics.
Now up to 73 responses to the survey. We are fast approaching the 100 responses that Lou referenced so if you have not yet participated and want to express your opinion, you might want to go onto the site in the next day or two as the survey might be closed down at that time.
