Will you be the first person in your family to graduate from college?

If yes, you are a first-generation college student. UNCG has a number of resources designed to support your journey!

Celebrating UNCG First Gen Students: First G at the G Week

We are here to celebrate you! Join us for First G at the G – a week-long series of events from November 7-10, 2022 with programming meant to help first-generation students connect with each other, faculty, and staff, as well as learn about campus resources. First-generation students are more likely to live off-campus, attend college close to home, attend school part-time and work full-time while in college. Many first-generation students are nontraditional (commuter, transfer, returning, foster, married, etc.) and therefore have a peripheral identity due to responsibilities outside of school. Some students – particularly from immigrant backgrounds – may serve as cultural brokers or translators. Many have high expectations placed on them as the first in their family to attend college. Our goal with the First G at the G program is to help make the transition easier for you.
