Have Princeton's 'Survey Junkies' Hit Rock Bottom?

September 30, 2022

Princeton, NJ – Has the Princeton community finally OD’d on surveys? As recently as a month ago we made a tongue-in-cheek reference to “survey junkies” In town who seemingly couldn’t resist responding to the many surveys coming their way.
