News Story

Are you the first in your family to go to college? You're not alone. Meet and greet with other first generation students on February 11.

 According to a 2010 study conducted by the Department of Education, 50 percent of the college population is made up of first generation students.

Being a first generation college student means grappling with issues other students may not be able to entirely relate to. On Thursday, February 11, from 3:25 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. in the Student Union’s Meeting Room A, connect with other first generation college students and get information about specific programs designed to help you at the 1st Gens Meet and Greet.
