What do surveys tell us about first-generation students?
Some differences in first-generation (defined as neither parent earning a college degree) freshmen compared to second-generation freshmen are explored in the latest edition of Institutional Research Clips. The clip focuses on why students choose college, their academic engagement in high school, academic aspirations, along with other findings. Find this clip, and others, at UND.edu/research/institutional-research/newsletter.cfm. In the fall, watch for the U2 session which will present these findings along with retention data of first-generation students.
