Community colleges appeal to the educational needs of immigrants in search of language training, job skills, and career opportunities. The main purpose of this ethnographic-focus study is to examine how community colleges meet the needs and goals of first generation Hispanic bilingual/bicultural students by reaching out to and providing them with educational and economic attainment. In addition, this study will assess and analyze the hurdles first generation Hispanic students encounter in seeking higher education, such as academic obstacles, personal obstacles, and college administration obstacles.
