1st Generation Students: Success vs Failure

1st generation college students - students who are the first in their family to attend a higher level educational institution - are the most at-risk population of students to drop out. This case study investigates the behavioral differences between those 1st gen students that get a degree and those that drop out - everything from class attendance throughout the year, to library usage, to social activity.

Learning Objectives

  1. The differences between 1st generation college students that succeed and fail.
  2. Understand how "normal" students behave differently than 1st generation students.
  3. 1st generation students are not doomed to fail - data can help provide insights into when and why to interact
