Abstract

The audience will learn about the barriers faced by first generation college students in their endeavors to complete a four–year degree, and the attributes and traits of these students that I have so far found enable them to do so. The significance of this research is that it can help improve retention rates at the colleges these students attend and, at some point, provide a guide for admissions people to be better able to determine which students are the best fit for their institutions, better enabling these students to graduate.
