The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the potential positive or negative influences that stem from familial responsibilities and expectations, along with cultural expectations on Latina college students' adjustment and persistence towards college graduation. Latinas face an array of unique concerns while navigating the educational pipeline. The study utilized a qualitative design because this methodology assisted in further exploring the discussed phenomenon through interviewing participants. 10 participants shared their experiences about growing up in a strict household and how it this affected their academic lives during college. The three themes that emerged were: (a) familial expectations (b) cultural expectations and (c) behavioral gender roles. Each one of the themes is supported by exemplars from the participants in the study.
