Mehta, Sanjay S.; Newbold, John J.; O'Rourke, Matthew A.
College Student Journal, v45 n1 p20-35 Mar 2011
Previous studies have determined factors contributing to first-generation student success. This study finds that first-generation students are less involved, have less social and financial support, and do not show a preference for active coping strategies. First-generation students report less social and academic satisfaction as well as lower grade point average. (Contains 4 tables.)
