There were tests conducted in the University of Southeastern Philippines which show that students tend to show their affection to others that is obviously seen by others. To this degree, the researchers come up with the study entitled “Effective Strategies on Showing Affection of Freshmen Electrical Engineering SY 2011-2012” to determine specifically what the effective strategies on showing affection are. In connection, the researchers aim to unravel if the respondents are capable enough in doing affectionate acts just to show affection to others. Facial expression, affectionate gestures and pick-up lines are just some of the great factors and reasons that contribute to the formulation of this study. Statement of the Problem
