About half of Florida college students are the first in their families to go to college. They are a source of pride for their families, though they can face unique challenges in transitioning to college. These challenges start with understanding the college-going process and, once on campus, include feelings of imposter syndrome, learning how to navigate campus resources, and finding peer support.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to anticipate the unique needs of first generation students
  • Successful strategies in preparing them for the transition to college
  • Providing the right supports to ensure their success on campus

FCAN thanks the following for sponsoring this webinar:
