If you are the first person in your immediate family to attend college, you are a considered a first-generation college student, and you’re not alone. Each year thousands of high school graduates are the first in their families to go on to college. First-generation college students often overcome serious obstacles – social, academic, or financial – to get there. Those who succeed have most likely received the support they needed from their parents, their high school, and ultimately the college they attend. Fortunately colleges today are doing a better job of reaching out to first-generation students, educating them and helping them to fit in and succeed. As you apply, ask questions and research your potential colleges with this in mind. You are to be commended for taking this ambitious step.
