In this study I will be researching the relationship between attachment, poverty, and wellbeing amongst College of Wooster students. I hypothesized that students with current or past generational history of poverty, would experience lower levels of attachment security. I surveyed students at the College of Wooster on their attachment security, wellbeing and financial status. Additionally, I asked them about their family’s history of attachment and poverty. Results are discussed in the context of intergenerational poverty and intergenerational attachment.
