PHC Surveyor Results
Which professor is most likely to be elected Pope? We posit that this
question, unlike others in our survey, has THREE and only three correct
answers. First: Dr. Montgomery, because he believes in his own
infallibility. Second: Dr. Chodakiewicz, because he is the only
Catholic. Third: Dr. Kucks, because he says “mass” more than any other
professor. In our survey, 26.5% of responses were for Dr. Montgomery,
12.9% for Dr. Chodakiewicz, and 1.2% for Dr. Kucks.
63% of respondents have read Pride & Prejudice. Unsurprisingly,
women are twice as likely to have read Pride & Prejudice than men.
40% of respondents prefered the 5hr BBC movie adaption, while 34%
prefered the shorter Universal version with Keira Knightley.
who have read Pride & Prejudice strongly prefer the 5hr BBC
production, while students who have partially read the book prefer the
2005 Keira Knightley movie. Students who have not read the book do not
like either movie. (If you want to celebrate the 200th Anniversary with
the largest number of friends, you are going to have to reserve that
dorm lounge for a long time!)
22% of students self-identify as members of College Republicans, while
9% are unsure. Compare this to CRs numbers submitted to the Senate last
fall, which claimed approximately 35% of the student body as members.
Are you a member, and don’t know it? (Freshmen are more likely to
self-identify as members than any other class.)
5) 36% of respondents frequently catch typos when they read the Herald. Only 16% never see typos in the Harold.
wondered whether girls who think J-majors are the handsomest guys were
more likely to overlook typos in the Herald, or more likely to be
critical in their approach. In fact, girls who think J-majors are the
handsomest came closer to the average than any other single major.
Girls who like Lit majors are most likely to find typos (100% find
typos “Very often”), and girls who like SI majors are least likely to
find typos (33.3% never find typos).
6) Only 72% of respondents gave a categorically non-racist answer to the sibling marriage question.
57% of respondents call the conflict “The Civil War,” 21% said “The
War Between the States,” 14% said “The War of Northern Aggression,” and
only 7.2% used the U.S. Department of Defense’s official name, “The War
of the Southern Rebellion.”
of the categorically non-racist answers also called the conflict “The
Civil War.” Respondents who were willing to make a categorically
prejudiced answer to the sibling marriage question were also the most
likely to give a radical answer (“War of Northern Aggression” or “War of
the Southern Rebellion”) to the conflict question.
63.9% of respondents answered “Unsure” to who is the President of the
PHC Alumni Association. 12.2% of students were unaware that John Vinci
has retired as a highly-respected Alumni Association president. 15.1%
knew that Daniel Noa was recently elected to serve as the new President.
Maybe the Alumni Association will want to find new ways to increase
communication with students?
then again, only 42.9% of alumni who took our survey correctly knew Noa
is the new President. Maybe the Alumni Association will want to find
new ways to increase communication with alumni?
Other answers we received from students included: Jenna Lorence, Jonathan Carden, and Sarah Pride.
9) 42% of guys believe heels improve a woman’s appearance. Only 17% believe heels detract from a woman’s appearance.
are most likely to say heels improve a woman’s appearance, followed by
the Senior class, then the Sophomores classes, with Juniors and Freshmen
last. Sophomores are most likely to say heels detract from a woman’s
Which major do campus girls believe is home to the handsomest guys?
23% of women say Political Theory. APP and SI tie for second at 15%
each. Overall, more than 75% of ladies chose a government major.
