Provide a brief description of the purpose and goals of this project.

The purpose of the study is to administer a web-based survey of entering first-year students that is concise, relevant to issues of interest at Cornell, maps logically onto subsequent surveys of our undergraduate students, and enables efficient turn-around of survey results. The survey will explore entering students' high school activities and achievements; personal goals, attitudes and abilities; and expectations of their Cornell experience.

Describe the population of interest (e.g. first year students, graduate students), sample size, and your method for selecting the sample.

All first-time, full-time freshmen entering in Fall 2018.
