First Generation Community

First Gen Logo

The First Generation housing community’s mission is to constantly provide first generation college students with additional resources and communal support, all while celebrating the diversity and richness of each individual’s background. This community aims to empower first generation students by supplementing education in a way that is conducive to different learning styles, alleviating family stress and pressures by providing a supportive and stress free environment, and celebrating the richness and privileges of being a first generation college student.
