The purpose of this study is to assess personal and interpersonal predictors of college adjustment among a sample of 190 first-year Hispanic students. Specifically, we examined the extent to which personal factors such as self-esteem, acculturation, and ethnic identity and interpersonal factors such as parental education and parental attachment predicted adjustment during the first year of college. A hierarchical regression revealed that students' personal and interpersonal variables were predictive of overall college adjustment during the first college year. Although independently related to overall college adjustment, interpersonal factors did not lead to a significant increase in variance explained in the dependent variable.
