Abstract

The current article examines the experiences of successful Cambodian American students as a unique ethnic group to understand their patterns of social and academic college integration. Cambodian American students' sense of academic belonging related closely to perceptions of personal connections. Our data suggest that integration into the campus environment and maintaining contact with the prior community are both important for Cambodian American students' successful adjustment. These data offer direction for college administrators, student affairs staff, and faculty in supporting the retention and academic success of Cambodian American college students.
