Research: Need student participation for focus groups

sefslogoMy name is Eve Rickenbaker and I’m a graduate student in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences.  My research involves understanding the University of Washington students’ perceptions of the Washington Park Arboretum through a series of focus groups.  All undergraduate and graduate students are eligible and invited to participate in the discussion group even if they have never visited or heard of the Washington Park Arboretum.  Each student’s perspective is valuable for my research, and I need approximately 6-8 students to participate in each focus group.   The ultimate goal is to improve the UW student visitor experience at the Washington Park Arboretum.  

Do you have a student list within the Information School you would be willing to share this focus group invitation with via e-mail?

Pizza and drinks will be provided as a way of thanking the students for their time and participation.

UW students:  These are the upcoming focus groups and if you are interested in participating in one, please respond to me ( and let me know which date works for you.  I really appreciate your time and help!  Ask a fellow UW student friend to join you!
