Abstract

Differences in four adjustment stressors (family, interpersonal, career, and academic), and depression and anxiety symptoms were examined between White, non-Hispanic and White, Hispanic undergraduate college female students. White, Hispanic female college students reported significantly greater academic and family adjustment stressors than White, non-Hispanic students. None of the socioeconomic or demographic variables predicted adjustment stress, depression, or anxiety. Findings are discussed in terms of college mental health outreach and future research directions.
