College Pulse is a survey platform founded by Dartmouth students on a mission to provide you with accurate data about what your campus thinks. All you have to do is ask questions about things you want to know about your campus, take surveys, analyze results, and anonymously discuss topics with other students.
Greetings Pulse People! Please continue to let us know how we can improve the platform by. Here's what's new:

Fun and Interesting
Many college students avoid each other and deep conversations enough that they don’t even know what most of the population of students on their campus are thinking. This app deletes that and replaces it with insight into the minds of others around our age with sometimes fun and/or startling quizzes and surveys. It’s definitely kind of addicting because you just keep wondering how different you are from the rest of your community. But also, you get stuff for doing it which adds a whole other level of interest! I’m glad I got an email about this app. It’s definitely worth it if you’re as curious about other humans as I am.

I'm glad you love Pulse!
Fun app, but prizes are VERY disappointing
I will start by saying that this app is definitely interesting and entertaining. It’s very fun to participate in the polls and analyze the results, and I think it is a good way to get people thinking about certain important topics. However, when I first signed up, I was most excited about the prizes. I took as many of surveys as possible to save up points, but I eventually realized that I was wasting my time. Even when there were some better prizes available on the app, most of them were for gift cards that still required for you to spend a certain amount of money — more than the value of the gift card — with whatever website they were for. These days, the prizes section seems to have been reduced to only raffles and charity donations. Considering that I once redeemed points to get a “personalized report” of my survey responses, which I never received despite two separate efforts at filling out the linked form, I have some degree of doubt about the legitimacy/functionality of the raffles and donations.
I keep this app around for the entertainment value, but I have pretty much given up on ever getting any kind of actual reward from it. That said, I’m hopeful that that will change someday!
Not too bad
It’s a pretty nice app overall, but the new update hurt it a bit. Before, you could scroll through countless old surveys and just answer them all. But now they removed all those so you can only see what they post every couple of hours. The real prizes they offer cost a ton of points, and they surveys they post on a daily basis usually only get you 10 points. Not being able to go through all the old surveys really hurts your chances of ever getting a prize that you actually care about. They do have streaks, but as you can imagine it takes a while to get any meaningful points out of them. The surveys themselves are usually pretty fun or interesting, there just aren’t very many of them you can do in a day now. The graphs that they use sometimes to display data are extremely weird and can be tough to read. Overall, not a bad app, but they shot themselves in the foot a little bit with the newest update.
PS: please bring back Yik Yak. This app’s comments are basically the same thing, so if you could bring that back I would appreciate it. I miss Yik Yak so much.

Sup Hashbrown–The new update shouldn't have affected your ability to look through past surveys. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can look into it for you!
Also we are about to release a new version to improve the "extremely weird" charts and graphs. Let us know what you think!
