During early 2017, a group of faculty and staff at UW-River Falls completed a brief literature review to help identify factors that other researchers have found to be associated with a college student’s likelihood of persisting to graduation. Based on that review, the group developed a questionnaire that asked students to indicate the degree to which they agreed or disagreed with 25 statements pertaining to their social, academic, and financial adjustment to college. In addition, we used information in the UW-River Falls database to capture the respondent’s gender, ethnicity, if a pre-major, if they commute to college, if they are a first generation college student, their high school GPA, college placement scores, and ACT scores.
