motivates students and instructors for a
better level of education.
A list of 30 students were conducted to fill
out a questionnaire as a sample opinion
for 4000 students. A 93% shows respond

1.) if they were to feel that the administration
was taking into consideration their requests.
Furthermore, we can assess that this
improvement in loyalty is greatly needed
nowadays, since 14% of the students answered
“Not at all” and 7% said to be indifferent, when
asked whether they felt or not committed to their
These findings proves that students at Notre
Dame University are aware of the benefits
of a more pleasant environment. However,
a majority prefers not to make its
complaints official, fearing that increasing
the costs the university incurs, would lead
to an increase in tuition fees.
The following recommendations are based
on these conclusions:

These recommendations and the findings of
the study should help the university ensure
that students are motivated to attend
classes and that it has a high quality
