Of the 100 students included in this study, 26 were freshmen, 21 were sophomores, 23 were juniors and 30 were seniors [9].

Overall, 15 students majored in music, 12 in biology, 11 in psychology, 10 pursued majors in communications, 8 majored in business, another 8 in education, 7 in health, 6 in computer science, 6…
