dc.description.abstract <p>The purpose of this study was to describe the precollegiate experiences of new students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University. New students to the college completed an on-line questionnaire about their home residence and personal and social experiences. Survey data were matched with university records to make comparisons based on demographic characteristics (i.e., gender, race, high school class rank, and college major). The results of this study indicate more students were from farms than from any other demographic variable. Students who chose a major related to production agriculture were no more likely to report a higher family income from farm or agri-business than those that chose majors not tied to production agriculture. The highest percentage of pre-collegiate involvement in extracurricular activities was athletics. This study was guided by the collegiate outcomes model, which was adapted from the collegiate leadership development model.</p>
