First-Generation Students

First-Generation Students Excel is a 3.5-day pre-semester experience specifically designed for first-generation students. Being a first-generation (first-gen) student means that your parent(s) did not complete a four-year college degree in the United States.  You will be connected with important campus resources and involvement opportunities, and meet other new students, faculty, and staff.
