* 1. Dear College Student,

Please take a few moments to read and consider participation in a short survey described below.

Nature and Purpose of Research
The purpose of this project is to learn how college students that have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis navigate the college lifestyle. We are interested in learning about what successes and challenges students with MS have, and what methods students use to face these experiences. By collecting information about the success of these methods, we hope to gain an understanding about what aspects of college life are the most challenging for students with MS, and identify potential methods that are the most effective.
