First G at the G

First G at the G is a week-long series of events from November 2 – 8 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 to attend college. Our goal with the First G at the G program is to help make the transition easier for these students!
