Description

Constantly comparing yourself to others. Questioning your abilities. Feeling like a fraud. These are a few symptoms of imposter syndrome, and it's common in first-generation students. It's a psychological pattern, where someone doubts their achievements and is afraid of being exposed as a 'fraud'. It can shape a student's entire identity in college, leading to stress, anxiety, and depression. This presentation will cover the broader symptoms of imposter syndrome and how it can greatly influence first-generation college students. We'll discuss the long-term effects of it, what students can do to overcome it, and how faculty can support their students.
