Saint Mary’s University students received information via email this week about the Core Survey, an online survey assessing students’ attitudes and behaviors surrounding alcohol, other drugs and overall health.
Completing this anonymous survey will give Saint Mary’s students the chance to win one of several prizes, including an Xbox 360, a PlayStation 3 and an iPhone, according to Michael O’Friel, alcohol and drug education coordinator and counselor. Other prizes include a $500 gas card, $500 tuition credit, a $500 gift card to Barnes and Noble, and a certificate for a seven-hour spa.
The contest will run through midnight on April 30, and the winning students will be notified on Saint Mary’s study day, May 1.
“It’s perfect timing to get that day at the spa you always wanted or $500 of gas to help you get home!” said O’Friel.
Only one entry per student will be allowed. To complete the survey and enter the drawing, students can go to http://www.siu.edu/~coreinst/
