Abstract:

Simply because their parents did not attend college, first-generation college students are at a higher risk of dropping out than other college students, if their needs are not met. A number of researchers have conducted studies of first-generation college students in order to assess their needs. However, a majority of these studies are quantitative and ask the first-generation student to answer multiple closed-ended questions. Such restrictive questions allow students to express their feelings only about previously provided prompts. As a result, the voice of the first-generation college student is silenced.
