1. The population I am interested in is my fellow peers at Mount Vernon Nazarene University, freshman through seniors, who are working on obtaining their undergraduate degree. I am interested in this population because I am a student here and as a psychology major, I want to know the views of my fellow students.

2. In order to acquire accurate random sample, I would obtain a list of all students email addresses that currently attend MVNU. I will print and cut out all email addresses separately and draw them one by one out of a bag, at random.
3. I am selecting 100 students to participate in my survey because that is a large number of students, which will give me a variety of answers. A sample size of 100 will give me an adequate and relevant sampling of the whole population.
4. My survey is as follows:
