Survey for students in contact with the student mentors

This past year, the Reed Psychology Department has been involved in a student mentoring program sponsored by the National Science Foundation . In order to evaluate the effectiveness of this program, we are interested in knowing what Psychology students think. Please answer the following questions and return the survey to the marked box located in the Psychology secretary's office.

To thank you for your participation, we are asking for your box number in order to mail you a treat when you turn this in this completed survey.

Thank you!
