Why First Gen?

Many students come to college with a go-to resource for navigating the university system: their parents who came before them. These students can learn from their parents' college experiences to avoid pitfalls and take advantage of resources so that they are more likely to be successful in their own college careers.

So what do you do if your parents don't have that direct experience? You come to First Gen Success! First Gen Success is your on-campus resource where you can meet other First Gen students, learn the university system and succeed in your goals at WSU.
