SURVEY - This could be a great opportunity to get some spur of the moment feedback from students to help design next year's book.
Do we need to create incentive to complete the survey? ie. Submit to enter a draw for a free yearbook next year? Ego page? Can we ensure that we only receive ONE response from each purchaser ie. Personalized response forms?
