Young people are dynamic, energetic, eager to socialize and to have fun. Based on these considerations, young people are an important segment of the tourism sector. At the same time, these characteristics can lead to the practice of unsustainable forms of tourism. The present study aims to highlight whether young people are prone to sustainable tourism or are in the sphere of influence of overtourism. The study is based on a questionnaire with 20 questions and a statistical analysis based on calculating the correlation ratio (R Multiple R) and the coefficient of determination (R2 R square) between certain dependent variables (tourist variables) and certain independent variables (socio-economic variables) but also performing a simple regression.The results indicate that young people are not necessarily followers of sustainable tourism and that the age is not a variable with a large influence on young people’s tourism preferences.

Youth Tourism has been acknowledged as one of the most perspective sectors of Tourism world, furthermore its trend is showing the high potential possessing for tourism development with the growing rate of student and young people travels. Clearly, in light of a plethora of opportunities and factors youth travellers are willing to spend their free time and weekends by travelling or going to off-beaten track or having trips on new places.

Integrating Tourism and Recreation Travel with Transportation Planning and Project Delivery (2004)
Chapter: appendix a - survey questionnaire.
Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.
34 APPENDIX A Survey Questionnaire NATIONAL COOPERATIVE HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROGRAM Project 20-5, Topic 33-11 QUESTIONNAIRE INCLUDING TOURISM AND RECREATION TRAVEL IN METROPOLITAN AND STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING & DECISION-MAKING The logistics and trends for tourism and recreation travel in the United States present a challenge for the transportation system. The success to meeting this challenge will depend on how well transportation agencies, tourism/recreation agencies, and tourism/recreation providers work together to define and implement a process where tourism and recreation travel concerns can be supported through discussion, project design, funding, and implementation. This integration already exists in many states in different forms with varying degrees of success and has influenced several functions within a DOT: â¢ Policy making that explicitly supports interagency collaboration, â¢ Transportation planning that reinforces the tourismâtransportation link, â¢ Data needs and analysis methods modified to identify tourism activity/impacts, and â¢ Project implementation inclusive of relevant tourism stakeholders. This questionnaire seeks to shed light on those issues by documenting the state of practice among transportation, tourism, and recreation agencies and tourism and recreation providers. This survey will revisit some of the recommendations and guidelines defined in an earlier NCHRP study, Tourism Travel and Transportation System Development, to update how the practices have changed and learn more about the transportation issues arising from tourism/recreation travel and the roles of interested stakeholders. The questionnaire should be filled out by persons who are familiar with your agencyâs/organizationâs transportation or tourism planning activities or transportation concerns. Your answers to this are relevant and important regardless of whether or not your agency/organization actively participates in a transportation planning or decision-making process that can influence tourismârecreation travel outcomes. Please return the completed questionnaire and any supporting documents by June 15, 2002 to: Lisa Petraglia Economic Development Research Group 2 Oliver Street, 9th Floor Boston, MA 02109 If you wish, you may fax your response to her at 1.617.338.1174.

Top 16 Student Survey Questions for Student Feedback
Student survey questions are a quick and intelligent way to collect accurate and honest information from students and alumni about school-related issues. With the help of this tool, all the people studying in an institution share their thoughts, keeping them on the path to success.
A student survey or school survey is carried out to gather the opinion of students on various aspects of their educational institute. Each survey question must be framed so that the answer can benefit the performance of the school site. Let’s talk about that.
LEARN ABOUT: Testimonial Questions
What are the types of student surveys?
Educational institutes run multiple student surveys for colleges or schools to gather feedback about various topics. Here’s a list of some popular survey questions for students:
- School climate surveys: These surveys address issues like student-teacher relationships, faculty involvement, student mental health, student tobacco, alcohol, and drug use, and student relationships.
- Student mental health and bullying surveys: It is highly essential to assess student mental health and address issues at the beginning before they bloom into bigger ones. Institutes must run surveys like peer relationship surveys, bullying behaviors, childhood trauma , social skills surveys, and substance abuse surveys to identify their mental health .
- Course evaluation surveys: Student feedback is vital to understanding the shortcomings of courses and identifying gaps that impact learning. As students are the best critics on courses, you must run surveys to capture their feedback about the class to make their learning experience more fun and fruitful.
- Faculty evaluation surveys : Students and faculty interact almost daily. The faculty must get feedback from students about different aspects like preparedness, subject matter knowledge, problem-solving approach, grading, time management, talent management , etc. to name a few. The institute also keeps track of student feedback to help teachers deliver the best education that suits students’ needs.

What are student survey questions?
Student feedback is essential for teachers and academic institutes to improve continuously. If you work in academia, it is a great idea to know the perceptions and opinions of students. Educational institutes conduct surveys to gather actionable feedback from students about the institute and its faculty. Schools run surveys for kids at the start, the middle, or the end of the academic year.
Frame questions in a way that the answer to each question benefits the educational institute in one form or another. Survey students to improve the educational institute’s overall functioning by analyzing the feedback received from student surveys.
Top 16 student survey questions for academic feedback
Here are the top 16 student survey questions to capture academic feedback. We’ve divided them into two categories – Questions about the class and issues about the teacher.

2. Given a chance, what is one change that you would like to see?
- Teaching method
- Time taken to complete a chapter

- >5 Hours
Homework is something that most students do not enjoy. If a student spends a significant time duration doing homework, there are higher chances that he/she dislikes attending the classes too.

Teachers can reward all the students periodically to maintain student satisfaction and happiness.
9. Does your teacher encourage you to perform better?
- Yes, all the time

12. Please share your agreement with this statement: “My teachers asks each one of us whether we have understood what she taught and helps us in case we have doubts.”
A classroom is where children learn the most, and a teacher is whom each turns to, in case of doubts and troubles. Ask this Likert Scale question to evaluate how good a teacher is at addressing and solving doubts.
13. Does your teacher appreciate the times when you work hard towards scoring well in a test or performing well in extracurricular activities?

New report signals return of study abroad

The release of the latest Open Doors Report , which provides data on study abroad participation nationally, reveals how eager CU students are to study abroad.
During the 2021–22 academic year, 1,987 CU Boulder students earned credit through study abroad programs, matching pre-pandemic participation. Issued annually by the Institute of International Education (IIE), the report this year ranks CU Boulder fifth nationally for sending students abroad on semester-length programs, up from eighth in 2020–21, and 10th nationally for institutions awarding credit for study abroad, up from 16th in 2020–21.
By the numbers
- 427 students 2022–23
- 349 students 2021– 22
- 88 students 2020– 21
- 15 students 2019– 20
- 240 students 2018– 19
Numbers reflect participation in CU's Global Seminars , which are short-term faculty led program with a specific academic focus. They provide a small group experience allowing CU students and CU faculty to build strong connections while augmenting their global competence. They offer an international experience for students who cannot study abroad during the academic year.
“CU Boulder students are curious, adventurous and committed to global issues and intercultural understanding,” said Sylvie Burnet-Jones, director of Education Abroad. “That mindset is a natural fit for study abroad, and we are excited to see that students are eager to explore the world and gain global perspectives as part of their CU education.”
These numbers serve in sharp contrast to participation in the previous two reporting years, which covered academic years in 2020 and 2021, when international travel was severely restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In January 2020, CU Boulder’s Education Abroad office was celebrating the successful start of the spring 2020 semester, which was the largest CU student cohort to go abroad in a single term at CU Boulder. By March 2020, however, staff were scrambling to bring everyone home, and Education Abroad suspended the rest of its international programs in 2020.
Then, in spring 2021, Education Abroad began carefully reopening its programs. Initial numbers were modest, with only 73 students studying abroad that spring. In summer 2021, however, student interest more than doubled.
“After summer 2021, student participation felt almost like ‘business as usual,’” noted Michal Greenberg, assistant director of Education Abroad. “We couldn’t believe how quickly student interest rebounded.”
Students receive significant support from Education Abroad and its program partners, making the process of living in a different country and taking classes away from CU more streamlined and navigable. The Education Abroad team provides students with advising, pre-departure support, scholarships, health and safety oversight, guidance on how credit earned abroad will fulfill CU degree requirements and support while abroad.
The most popular destinations for CU Boulder students in 2021–22 were in Western Europe, with Spain and Italy attracting the most students. “Europe was one of the first regions to reopen study abroad programs, so the interest in Europe has become even more popular as word-of-mouth about those programs has been passed along among students,” Burnet-Jones noted.
There’s a spot for you: Dig into Education Abroad programs, scholarships, more
“But we partner with hundreds of programs and universities to give our students high-quality opportunities around the globe, including Latin America, Asia, Africa and more.”
Education Abroad is also seeing increased interest from students in their faculty-led Global Seminars. These are programs that typically run in the summer and are led by CU Boulder faculty members, teaching 10-25 CU Boulder students and incorporating local sites, cultural activities and visits with local organizations into the classroom experience.
Burnet-Jones noted that Education Abroad’s latest initiatives include the development of new scholarships, a focus on sustainable travel and providing a diverse set of programs, including opportunities for students to complete research, internships and fieldwork abroad.
“We are thrilled to see how well CU Boulder is doing at the national level,” Burnet-Jones concludes, “And we have no intentions of relaxing our efforts. We want to see even more students study abroad in the future. Education Abroad is a high-impact, formative experience that we believe every CU student should have access to.”

South High students dive into textiles, merchandising and fashion design
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Department of Textiles, Merchandising, and Fashion Design welcomed 19 third- and fourth-year Fashion Pathway students from South High School in Omaha for a visit. These students explored the diverse array of experiences and opportunities the department has to offer.
Sandra Starkey, associate professor, and Michael Burton, assistant professor, gave the students a tour of the department facilities and collections, including the Robert Hillestad Gallery and the Historic Textiles Collection. Students also learned about the various technologies used by faculty and students, including Rokoko motion-capture bodysuits, Clo3D digital apparel design software, body scanning for avatar creation, and digital surface design for textiles.
“The technology they had was impressive because it was new to me, and I had never experienced anything similar to it,” said Emily Sanchez, a South High student.
Attending various classes such as Textiles Lab, Garment Assembly, Merchandising III, and Fashion Analysis and Presentation, students obtained a firsthand glimpse into the academic life within the department. They observed and participated in these courses, later sharing this part of the experience as one of the trip’s highlights.
“The thing I enjoyed the most was being able to go into the classes to be able to experience what it’s like being a college student,” said Kimberly Ceballos Rodriguez of South High.
The visit was organized in part by South High teacher Sara Policky, herself an alumna of the Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design program at Nebraska. She expressed her hope that the experience would ignite a sense of possibility in the students.
“I hoped to inspire the students to envision themselves here, recognizing our fashion pathway as their gateway to a successful future,” Policky said. “I want them to see that their skills make them perfectly suited for the respected UNL Textile program.”
The impact of the visit was apparent in the enthusiastic feedback from the students.
“It’s one of the best tours I’ve had, lots of information given along with friendly and outgoing students,” said student Ayanna Barragan. “They answered all of my questions and were super honest about the school. The [apparel] collections in the class were absolutely amazing.”

University Career Services Employment Website and Single Graduation Survey: A New Chapter for streamlining data collection and elevating student success
DSA News November 13, 2023
University Career Services continues its unwavering commitment to student success by taking a significant step forward in enhancing the career journeys of University of Houston (UH) students. University Career Services (UCS) recently launched an innovative employment website. This platform not only empowers students but also streamlines data collection efforts for the university.
The UCS Employment website, accessible at Employment Data - University of Houston , serves as a comprehensive hub of information for students and employers. It represents a culmination of hard work, dedication, and a vision to support students in their professional pursuits. Dr. Daniel Maxwell, interim vice chancellor, and interim vice president of student affairs, expressed his excitement, stating, "I am excited for our students and employers who can now explore comprehensive employment data by going to the University Career Service (UCS) website. I am appreciative of the visionary work of Dr. Monica Thompson, interim associate vice president for student affairs and UCS executive director, and her partnership with Institutional Research and the Office of the University Registrar in both creating this new landing page and implementing one all-inclusive graduation survey for our graduating seniors. This is a game changer in the work we do for our students."
The UCS employment website is not merely a repository of data; it is a testament to the Division of Student Affairs' dedication to fostering student success. Some of the key aspects that make this platform essential include:
- Comprehensive Employment Data: The website provides a wealth of information, enabling students and employers to access essential insights. Students can explore career outcomes, job placement rates, salary data, and employer engagement information. This wealth of information empowers students to make informed decisions about their career paths.
- Seamless Data Collection: The platform streamlines data collection efforts for the university. By centralizing employment data and leveraging the partnership with Institutional Research and the Office of the University Registrar, UH has established a more efficient process for gathering and presenting employment-related statistics. This not only saves time but also ensures data accuracy and integrity.
- Graduation Survey: A notable addition to this initiative is the introduction of an all-inclusive graduation survey for graduating seniors. This survey gathers valuable information about students' post-graduation plans, including their employment status, further education, or other pursuits. This data is instrumental in understanding how the university contributes to students' career success.
- Support for Student Career Journeys: The UCS employment website aligns perfectly with the university's commitment to supporting its students. It offers a treasure trove of resources, including resume-building tips, job search strategies, interview preparation, and much more. Students have access to a wide range of tools and advice to help them navigate the competitive job market successfully.
- Employer Engagement: Employers also benefit from this initiative as they can gain insights into the caliber of UH graduates, making it easier for them to identify potential talent for their organizations. This engagement fosters a strong connection between the university and the business community.
Dr. Monica Thompson, interim associate vice chancellor/interim associate vice president and executive director of UCS, said “I would like to extend my appreciation to Cynthia Olmedo, assistant director of Alumni Career Services at UCS, for her exceptional work in collaboration with the UCS team and various college graduation teams since 2015. When I first joined University Career Services in 2014, our data collection efforts were quite limited. Over the years, we explored various approaches to boost response rates, continually innovating to collect and share data effectively with our constituents. I am incredibly proud of the collective efforts we have undertaken as a team.”
Dr. Thompson also expressed, “In addition to the employment website launch, University Career Services launched a single campus-wide graduation survey. Many thanks to our campus partners in Institutional Research, the Office of the University Registrar, and the College-based career centers for working with me and my team to bring both goals to fruition. These are indeed exciting times ahead, and this achievement marks a significant step in enhancing our data collection and reporting processes for our institution.”
The launch of the UCS employment website is a milestone in the University of Houston's journey to elevate student success. It exemplifies the DSA’s commitment to its students' futures, making career-related information more accessible, and streamlining data collection efforts. Through these efforts, the university can tell a more compelling story about the impact it has on the lives of its students.
In conclusion, the University of Houston's UCS Employment website is a valuable resource that represents a significant stride towards enhancing the career journeys of its students. It encapsulates the spirit of collaboration, dedication, and a commitment to supporting the aspirations of UH students. With this innovative platform, students and employers alike can explore a wealth of data and resources that will undoubtedly shape the future of UH graduates.
