Here at Southern, we are proud to have a large and vibrant first generation community. And that doesn't involve just current students -- there are a variety of alumni, faculty and staff who also share pride in having pursued a college degree before their parents, and are looking to connect with individuals and families who share that experience.
Part of creating that community is opening up to one another and sharing our stories. Please consider reflecting on your experience, and contributing your personal or professional journey -- the challenges and advantages, the barriers and benefits, the lows and the highs. Help us show the collective meaning of what it means/has meant to be a first-generation college student.
