How do children from undereducated and impoverished backgrounds get to college? What are the influences that lead them to overcome their socioeconomic disadvantages and sometimes the disapproval of families and friends to succeed in college? These are the basic questions Sandria Rodriguez posed to a diverse group of seventeen first-generation college graduates, including herself; their compelling life stories make important contributions to what little is known about this phenomenon.
