The influence of social support, university comfort, and self-beliefs on the persistence decisions of 98 African American undergraduates attending a predominantly White university was examined. Each construct significantly predicted persistence, with university comfort and social support the strongest predictors. A positive perception of the university environment was related to higher cultural congruity and perceived mentorship.
