Survey "Feeling good?" 2023

Following the positive reactions to the first edition of this survey in 2021, "Feeling good?" has been renewed for a second edition. The survey ran from March 3 to 31, 2023, and was conducted online among 7297 students who had been registered at Unifr for at least 3 semesters.
