"Being in the First Generation Students Association has inspired me to tackle things in college I normally wouldn't take the time to achieve: from learning the intricacies of financing and doing my taxes, to utilizing all of our campus' available resources as an opportunity to prepare myself for post-college life. Not to mention the people I have met, who all come from a similar background, in that we're first-generation students and heading toward a similar goal in leading successful lives."
"The First Generation Students Association has meant a lot to me, especially this year being my first year as a college student. First Generation Students Association helped me with the transition from high school to college and from being watched over all the time to being responsible and on my own. The club even sponsored different presentations and conferences that were very helpful."
