$10 Eagle Dining Gift Cards!

Researchers in the psychology department are seeking volunteers between the ages of 18-24 who have consumed alcohol within the past year. If you fill out the brief survey you will be eligible to win 1 of 10 ($10) Eagle Dining gift cards!

The college years are an important time for young adults as they are developing their lifelong health behaviors. Participation in this survey will greatly increase the knowledge and understanding on those behaviors and the possible prevention and interventions for college students.

The project is confidential and has been approved by the USM Institutional Review Board. The deadline to be eligible for the Eagle Dining card is Friday May 6 at 8 AM.
