The term ‘first-generation college student’ is used to describe students who are the first in their families to go to college. First-generation college students tend to enter college with less knowledge of the college experience and less family support. These factors can contribute to a lack of success for the student. If not provided with the support and resources, first-generation college students can find it hard to navigate their college experience. Being the first can, however, be a rewarding experience. With the proper support, first-generation college students exceed expectations in college.
