Description

Latino students are one of the minorities that attend higher education in the United States, especially in the Midwest region. A study released in 2007 stated that only 48% of Latinos ages 18 to 25 compared to 60% of all young adults say they plan to obtain minimum a Bachelor’s degree. Latino First Generation college students that currently attend Minnesota State University, Mankato are recruited to participate in this study. Each participant participated in face-to-face interviews. This project will look into themes of different communication styles each student had with their parents growing up and how it may have affected their higher education.
