What is a first-gen student? A first-generation college student is defined as a student whose parents/legal guardians have not completed a bachelor’s degree. A student that is the first person in their immediate family to attend a four-year college/university to attain a bachelor’s degree. The First Friday with F1RST-Gen will be held at 11:30 a.m. today, Sept. 3 at the Rhatigan Student Center (RSC) in room 261. Join other staff, students and faculty for the F1RST-Gen meet-up and welcome of fall 2021. The First Gen Coordinating Council (FGCC) is happy to introduce The Alpha Alpha Alpha (Tri-Alpha) a first-generation honor society open to all first-generation Wichita State students, faculty, staff and alumni. Tri-Alpha membership is built to support and advocate for the academic excellence of first-generation college students. FOCUS ON FIRST-GEN: This week we highlight Crystal Dozier, Assistant Professor and Archaeologist, Department of Anthropology. F1RST-GEN T-Shirts are available in the RSC Shocker Store for $12.
