Date of Award
National, state, and institutional data has indicated years of minimal increases in persistence; all while institutions continue to implement new strategies that they believe will increase persistence. What institutions often lack is understanding the lived experiences of first-time-in-college students who successfully persisted from their first fall to first spring and how those experiences influenced their first term success and second term persistence. This qualitative phenomenological research study will interview students to understand the experiences of first-time-in-college community college students regarding persisting from their first term to their second term at a medium-sized, public, community college in central Texas.
