AbstractThis study explores the factors which impede, encourage and facilitate access to university among Newfoundland students who applied to the first year of studies at Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1971. It discusses the differences in urban/rural, social class and academic background among those who entered Memorial, those who were accepted but did not attend and those who did meet Memorial's entrance requirements. -- The study also explores the social and academic adjustment patterns among Memorial's freshmen, in terms of their subjective experiences and attitudes toward their subjective experiences and attitudes toward their home communities, the university and their career expectations. -- Attention is given to the interrelation of access and adjustment to university and the overall economic and educational state in Newfoundland.
