News Story

1st Gens, a monthly discussion group for first generation college students, is here!

Are you the first in your family to attend college? So are many of your fellow Setters. 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, which is why the Office for Student Success is proud to announce the inaugural 1st Gens, a monthly discussion group for first generation college students! 1st Gens, in addition to creating a safe and open environment for first generation Setters, will help students connect with academic and professional resources.

The next 1st Gens discussion group will be held on Wednesday, October 14, from 12:15 p.m.–1:10 p.m. at 41 Park Row, 9th Floor, in the reception area. Refreshments will be provided!
