Research study on llife as a first year UIUC student


We are inviting you to participate in a study of college adjustment among freshmen that is being conducted by researchers at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Boston University, Boston College, and University of California Santa Barbara. The study involves completing a brief, confidential web survey (link below) that includes questions about your experiences prior to starting at UIUC. The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of how first year students adjust to college – the challenges and successes that you experience. We will be sending out a follow-up survey in the Spring to learn about your first year at UIUC. To thank you for your time, we will raffle off one $300 Apple Gift Card.
