The purpose of the College of Wooster’s First-Generation Student Organization is to establish a support system for first-generation and low-income college students on campus. We aim to facilitate the transition to college and post-college life for first-generation/low-income students through mentorship networks and sharing academic and social resources.

Goals:

  • To build a strong community among first-generation college students.
  • Provide a comfortable location for first-generation students to express thought.
  • To provide the first-generation student community a platform to express their voice and to advocate for themselves.
  • Offer advice and share information crucial to succeeding academically and professionally.
