First Generation College Student Coalition Open Meeting — 4/9, 4 p.m.

First Generation College Student Coalition Open MeetingPlease come out to our open meeting on Saturday April 9th at 4pm in Usdan 110 to learn more about our group!
Our mission is:
To create a safe space and foster a community of support for first-generation college students of all backgrounds. This is an opportunity for any first-gen on campus to share and feel empowered by their experiences and struggles. This is also an outlet for us to make our presence known on campus and to inform the larger community about issues surrounding first-generation college students, specifically pertaining to class. All self-identified first-generation college students are encouraged to be part of this essential network. Together we will be each others’ safety net in this oftentimes difficult environment.

As first-generation college students at Wesleyan, we feel that it is necessary to create a safe space for us to celebrate our experiences, and do more to help future first gen students adjust to and celebrate their Wesleyan experiences with us. We also feel that it is necessary to finally address issues of class existing at Wesleyan. For these reason, we have created the first-generation college student coalition.

If you are a self-identified first-generation college student or ally, and cannot attend the meeting, please e-mail us at
