Living Learning Communities

First Generation

This community is ideal for students whose parents/guardians did not complete a bachelor’s degree in the United States. Students engaged in this community will receive targeted support to acclimate to university life, engage in the campus community, and develop necessary academic skills. A guidebook has been created for First Gen students and their families. For your convenience, we have both English and Spanish versions of the guidebook.
