    (i.e. no real consequences or incentives for failure or success), we must research the question further in a college setting. Additionally, it has been found in various research (see Jaret 2005) that women are more affected by their relationship status than men, and therefore studying the differences between men and women’s self-esteem in relation to relationship status can be telling of gender differences in romantic social interactions. The particular question I hope to employ upon the DePauw University student population is ‘how does relationship status affect self-esteem differently between males and female college students?’ To begin answering this question, I will be implementing a cross-sectional research design for my investigation. Due to time constraint for this study, as well as the private nature of relationships and self-esteem, this is the ideal design for my study. I will ensure that my study is representative of the student population by using systematic sampling of the DePauw student directory. After determining my sample for my study, I will distribute an online survey by means of the sample members’ student emails. Before diving into the research, the question at hand needs to be broken down and defined. Key concepts in this study that need to be understood in order to interpret the research are ① relationship status, ② self-esteem, ③ male, ④ female, and ⑤college student. The first term that needs clarification is relationship status; for this research I…

  • Triggers: The Key To Anxiety

    member should care enough to learn this—or the student should feel safe and comfortable enough to let them know this—and react accordingly. DePauw is all about a close environment where most know each other and should be helpful and supportive. Some circumstances may be unavoidable though. For example, if the faculty member doesn’t know that a given student has an obscure trigger due to a variety of reasons, there isn’t much the staff can do under those circumstances. This is why I believe it…
