SCU First Gen Staff/Faculty Profiles

Janice DeMonsi
Director of Recreation, Student Life
Where did you attend college?

University of Arizona

What was your college experience like as a first-generation college student?

In the 90's when I was in college there was not an office to give us support, so a lot of it was overwhelming. I did one year in college in Vermont where I grew up before transferring to the University of Arizona.

What message do you have to share with current first-generation college students?

Ask questions -- there are so many faculty and staff that are here to help you, whether it is about insurance, the financial aid forms- if we do not know the answer we can help you figure it out.
