Resources for first-gen students 

This week’s New York Times included an article with some good context and suggestions for first-generation college students. It’s great to see articles about the concerns of first-gen students appearing in mainstream news publications. It’d be even better to have more narratives from first-gen students themselves. Let’s encourage our students to talk about their experiences and their needs, and let’s help them to share those reflections with the folks on campus who can make a difference for them. And let’s be the ones who can make a difference.
