First Generation College Students: Welcome

Your Librarians Are Here to Help!

Congratulations on being the first in your family to attend college!

Being the first may offer some unique challenges.  This guide is designed to help you prepare for and navigate the college experience. It provides an array of resources and information regarding academic, financial, and social issues.

Remember: please ask a librarian for help if you need it.  That's why we're here.
