On March 31, The Phillipian, vol. CXLVI, sent out the 2023 "State of
the Academy" to the entirety of Andover's student body in hopes of
obtaining valuable information about the community.
The Phillipian received a participation rate of 81.0% of the student body - 931 participants. The anonymous survey asked a comprehensive set of 149 questions comprising nine sections: General, Politics & Worldview, Education, Wellness, Drugs & Alcohol, Sex, Campus Culture, Community Diversity, and Discipline.
To determine correlations, The Phillipian analyzed the CSV file of all responses from Survey Monkey with Python. The Phillipian proceeded to use PANDAS, matplotlib.plotly, and numpy libraries to find correlations between each question.
We sincerely thank the members of the student body for their willingness to share information and personal experiences for this annual issue of The Phillipian, and we hope that the State of the Academy will serve to inform, enlighten, and create a more holistic narrative of the students at Andover.
