Dear students,
I am conducting a study at Colorado College designed to gain a better understanding of the factors that influence the pursuit of education after high school graduation among Latinx students. If you identify as Hispanic/Latinx I invite you to complete the demographic survey that should take you no more than 5 minutes to complete.
Upon completion of the survey I will send you a follow up email that will invite you to participate in one of four focus groups to discuss the factors that influence(d) your pursuit of education. Here is the survey link:

This is ONLY for the SENIORS! You are invited to participate in a focus group conversation reflecting on your own studying habits on the Block Plan. The focus group will last between one hour or two hours in the evening around 5 PM. There will be free food served during the focus group as your compensation. With the information that will be collected, the results will be given to the First Year Experience Program to design a program around how the first-year students can adjust their own studying habits. If you are interested in providing your own personal experience about your studying habits on the Block Plan, please email xchang@coloradocollege.edu or x_chang@coloradocollege.edu or xong.chang@coloradocollege.edu by the end of this week. Thank you!
