This past week, the Orient sent out its semesterly approval ratings survey. The survey was sent to all 1,805 students and yielded 475 responses (26.3 percent). Support for the Brunswick Police Department declined sharply from last year amid controversy over off-campus enforcement.
The Orient sent out a survey to the student body on Monday evening. It closed yesterday afternoon after yielding 653 responses, totaling 36 percent of the student body. Ninety-five percent of respondents were registered to vote, but only 46 percent of those registered were registered in Maine.
