Editor's Note
Once again, we have a very eclectic group of articles that you will hopefully enjoy. Researchers planning to employ survey design methodology will find some interesting tips, and student affairs practitioners will discover some new technological applications. Faculty, students, and staff members will gain insights on two important issues: gay identity development and online gambling.
