Abstract
First-generation students (FGs) often face unique challenges in navigating collegiate experiences which can impact their well-being. In this study, we examine undergraduate FGs’ mind and body well-being using data from two large-scale multi-institutional data sets. Specifically, we examine relationships between stressors and supports and assess the extent that FGs know how to get help at their institution for a variety of well-being issues. Results imply that FGs generally feel less institutional support for their well-being, that inverse relationships exist for mind and body stressors and institutional supports, and that results for knowing how to get help are mixed. Implications point to continued disaggregation to better understand FGs experiences and recognizing the importance of social capital to FGs success.
