First Generation

Navigating college and career readiness can be overwhelming when you are a first-generation college student.  This affinity group will provide advice, resources, and networking opportunities tailored to your needs to help you gain the most from your college experience and feel more confident and prepared after graduation. 

Who is first-gen?
Depending on who you’re asking, the definition of first-gen students can be a bit different.  Here at the Fleishman Center, we are keeping it simple.

This affinity group is for: 

  • Students whose parents did not complete a 4-year degree 

  • Students who lived with and received support from only one parent/guardian who did not complete a 4-year degree
