SCU First Gen Staff/Faculty Profiles

Sonia Gomez
Assistant Professor, History
Where did you attend college?

UC Berkeley; University of Chicago

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

I was a Community college transfer to Berkeley. At Berkeley I felt lost in a sea of students but quickly found my people at the Transfer, Re-Entry, Student Parent center (TRSP)

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

Ask for what you need. You might be surprised to find that most people are happy to help.
