Counseling for First-Gen Students

Transitioning to college is often both an exciting and intimidating step, especially for first generation college students. On the CCS website, you can find 10 Things Only First Generation College Students will Understand…and Resources!. Whether you’re an incoming freshman or preparing to start your last semester before graduation, CCS services can support you with the unique challenges of being part of the first generation in your family to attend college. The Center for Belonging and Social Change also offers a First-Gen Student Empowerment workshop series throughout the fall to provide helpful information and a space for community. The Buckeyes First website highlights upcoming events, first-gen Scholars programs, student stories, and resources for students and families.
