Differences among Latino Students in Precollege Multicultural Exposure and the Transition Into an Elite Institution
Lopez, J. Derek
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v12 n3 p269-279 Jul 2013
This study examined the within-group differences in adjustment to college among Latino college students. Surveys measured participants for degree of precollege multicultural exposure, current concerns, minority student stress, social resources, and sociocultural orientation. The findings suggested that the transition into a predominately White, highly selective institution was different for Latino students based upon multicultural exposure in their high school context.
