It’s completely safe…

I haven’t completed the vaunted Senior Survey yet, but I have been receiving reminder e-mails from the University’s Office of Planning and Institutional Research about it. One sentence from the most recent note stuck out:

There are no physical or psychological risks to respondents.

Thank goodness—I’d been worrying that Georgetown might construct a survey so twisted, I’d lose my mind. Nope! It’ll just be used to justify poorly conceived academic policies.
