Abstract

This study examined the first-year college experience of students from migrant farmworker families. Data were obtained through a written survey and subsequent small group interviews with 13 participants in a federally supported program for students from farmworker backgrounds. Information regarding the students' decisions to pursue a college degree, the quality of the first-year college experience, and the students' views of their academic futures is presented in this article.
