Maramba, Dina C.
Journal of College Student Development, v49 n4 p336-350 Jul-Aug 2008
As Filipina/o Americans comprise the largest Asian immigrant population in the United States, the experience of college-aged children of immigrants becomes an increasing concern at the university level. The purpose of this qualitative research investigation was to explore the ways Filipina American students negotiated their home environment and college experiences. Three primary themes emerged from the data: family/ parent influence, home obligations/gender differences, and importance of negotiating their Filipina American identity within the context of their home and college experiences. Provided are implications, particularly for student affairs professionals, administrators, and researchers.
