This is an ethnographic study of an inner city college spanning two decades after the institution of open admission in 1970. Its students are predominantly African-American and Hispanic, though increasing numbers come from countries throughout the developing world. These first generation college students, many of them beyond customary college age, come to school encumbered with the burdens of poverty, minority status, and inadequate early schooling.
