First-generation college students (FGCS) experience the same challenges as non-first-generation students (NFGCS), but they also face their own unique stressors such as a lack of academic preparation, absence of support from family and friends, and difficult cultural transitions.

The goal of this presentation to inform the Student Support Personal and give practical skills to apply to their program.
