Experiences with Relationships
When examining all female responses of experiences of relationships, relationships with
faculty and other students were strong for both persisters and early drop outs, except for
experiences with finding faculty being superior teachers (see Table 17). This was the lowest
average of all items measured for persisters and early drop outs in the entire study. As predicted,
the mean for the early drop outs was lower than that of the persisters. The averages by ethnicity
were similar for persisters while Hispanic early drop outs had a higher average (3.80) than White
(3.34) or Black (3.06) students and a higher average than Hispanic persisters as seen in Table 18.
