Going to college is a monumental accomplishment for any incoming freshman, but for some students, this isn’t just a personal achievement - it’s a milestone for everyone in their family. First-generation college students can be a source of pride for a family, but being the first to pursue a college degree can also present unique challenges - namely, that they cannot benefit from their parents’ college experience. This workshop will explore what it means to be a first-generation student, discuss obstacles you may face, and offer tips and strategies on how to face them head-on.
