Name: Chapel Attendance


Abstract: This study looked at if students at Hope College seem to attend chapel less as they progress through their years at Hope.  This study used a simple random sample of 250 Hope students selected from the Hope College student phone book.  The survey was distributed by email.  Eight e-mail addresses were no longer valid, reducing the sample size to 242 students.  After the email was sent to the entire sample twice in five days, 87 students responded to the survey.
