ESU Project Aims to Help First-Generation College Students
2017 Oct 10
To help first-generation college students, ESU launched its "1st Gen" project in September. Faculty and staff who were in the first generation of their families to go to college will be invited to wear buttons that say "1ST GEN" to identify themselves on campus for current first-generation students who have questions or just want to talk to someone who was once in their shoes. As of Fall 2016, first-generation college students made up 28.5 percent of ESU undergraduates.
