“First, But Not Alone showcase the powerful narratives of students, staff, faculty and administrators’ success and challenges from the past, present and future in the context of their identity as first-generation students to first-generation professionals. These collective stories serve as a reminder of the shared experiences and tapestry of the hornet family”

“The First Generation Institute was well-structured event, from the speakers, to the films, every workshop was new learning experience for me. As a 1 stgen student I am glad I was able to attend and was fortunate to receive such valuable information.  It was a great opportunity to be in a room with others of the same mindset and connect with each other by sharing our experiences.”
