Highline College is conducting an online survey of current students to help with future planning. The National Media Preferences survey asks students how they use media and how they spend their time.
Participants will be entered in a drawing to win a $150 Amazon Gift Card.
The survey is open through Nov. 14 and takes about 20 minutes to complete. It is voluntary and confidential.
To participate, look for the invitation in your student e-mail, or visit:
