College students assessing town-gown relationships in light of COVID-19
Three sociology students at Middlebury College are trying to understand how the return of out-of-towners to campus during the COVID-19 pandemic has affected how students and townspeople perceive each other, and how that has affect each others’ habits.
They are seeking Addison County residents to take an online survey that will help them make that assessment. To sweeten the deal, survey respondents will have the option to enter themselves into a raffle for a $50 gift card to Hannaford supermarket.
The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete, and all responses are anonymous and confidential.
The study is a research project for the trio’s class, Sociology of the Pandemic.
