Hispanic persisters and Early Drop Outs scored their expectations of college similarly.
The highest expectation for persisters was their satisfaction of academic progress, followed
closely by instructors caring about their students and developing close friendships with other
students. For Hispanic Early Drop Outs, the highest expectation was that instructors care about
their students with academic progress and developing close friendships following. There was
little variation within the top three expectations. The lowest expectation for both groups was the
expectation to join student government. Students' expectations of faculty and of academic
progress were much higher than expectations of involvement in social activities (see Table 12).
