This research would seemingly try to have a clear view on the perceptions of the UBLC students on the influence of Spanish Colonization in the Country. The findings of this study will help find out whether UBLC students are aware/unaware of the influences of Spanish Colonization in the country, to find out in which area does Spanish Colonization brought greater influences, and how favourable are the influences of Spanish Colonization to UBLC students.

1.2 Statement of the Problem
The main problem of this study is to correlate the perception of UBLC students on the influence of Spanish Colonization in the country. Specifically, it attempts to answer the following research questions: 1.Are the UBLC students aware with the influences of Spanish Colonization in the country? 2.How favorable are the influences of Spanish Colonization in the country to UBLC students? 3.What is the mean result of the influences of the Spanish Colonization in the country in relation to the following areas: a.Government

b.Culture
c.Education
d.Economy
e.Religion
4.What are the reactions of UBLC students on the influence of Spanish Colonization in the country?

1.3 Hypothesis
Based on the identified research questions, the researcher hypothesize that UBLC student are aware with the influences of Spanish colonization in the country that are observed today which are indicated in the areas of (a) government, (b) culture, (c) education, (d) economy, and (e) religion. The mean result of the influences of Spanish Colonization appealed to be favourable to UBLC students which mean that they like the influence brought by the Spanish Colonization.

1.4 Conceptual Framework

This descriptive research problem of correlating the perception of UBLC students to the influence of Spanish Colonization in the country has important implications in solving the need of the UBLC students to be aware on the influence of Spanish Colonization in the country. This is also important to know how favor/unfavor are the students to the influences of Spanish Colonization. This is also important to know in what areas do Spanish Colonization brought greater influence in the country. 1.6 Scope and Limitations of the Study

This study was limited only to correlate the perception of UBLC students on the influence of Spanish Colonization in the country.
Unrestricted random sampling was used in this study with the use of questionnaire to determine the correlation of the perception of UBLC students on the influence of Spanish Colonization in the country. Interview method was also used to find out the reaction of UBLC students on the influence of Spanish Colonization in the country. The results of the study were interpreted with use of weighted arithmetic mean. Based on the above conditions, the results and conclusions would, therefore, be true for this group of subjects. However, the results could be used as basis for similar studies that might be conducted at other times. 1.7 Definition of Key Terms

Based on the About.com, correlation is a statistical measurement of the relationship between two variables. Possible correlations range from +1 to –1. A zero correlation indicates that there is no relationship between the variables. A correlation of –1 indicates a perfect negative correlation, meaning that as one variable goes up, the other goes down. A correlation of +1 indicates a perfect...
