The First Generation Network is a new program designed to support students who are the first in their family to attend college, aka first generation college students.  This program also seeks to support students historically underrepresented in higher education; including African American, American Indian, Asian American, Latin@, and Pacific Islander students.

The First Generation Network will engage participants during their first year of college through fun social activities, culturally relevant events and programs as well as one on one interactions with historically underrepresented students who have completed their first year at Westminster. 

To join the network contact Lu Marzulli lmarzulli@westminstercollege.edu
