Cultural Adaptation to a University Campus: The Case of Latino Students
Yang, Raymond K.; Byers, Steven R.; Salazar, Guadalupe; Salas, Richard A.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v8 n2 p115-129 2009
Latino university students' responses to two surveys revealed three types: one recalls valuable family lessons, relates them to university experiences, and envisions how these experiences will have long-range benefits; the second is lonely, confused, and insecure; the third values cultural origins, but feels anxious and self-conscious. These types reflect the emergence of a bicultural identity and the importance of Latino student-support offices. (Contains 1 table.)
