Description

In this presentation, I will talk about my own experiences as a first generation high school graduate and college student. Specifically, I will address the lack of support in high school, difficulty of applying for and finding financial aid, and the problem of "time" during undergraduate preparation. I will offer some advice for first generation students and faculty; however, I will also offer a strong critique of the structure of the United States’ university system, which must be changed to offer equal and equitable support for all people who want to attend a university or college.
