USP Club Survey

In the past, USP has had a USP club for students interested in planning (regardless of major). Its aim was to connect students with one another,  provide opportunities for social networking and learning about planning and design-related careers, as well as to have some fun. In the last few years interest in the club diminished but we have received feedback that students might be interested in the club once again. We have created a survey to gather feedback about whether or not to restart the club.

If you could fill out our brief interest survey, we would greatly appreciate it:
