SCU First Gen Staff/Faculty Profiles

Byron Howlett
Assistant Dean, Student Life - Campus Climate, Office of Student Life
Where did you attend college?

UCLA (Go Bruins!)

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

Scary! Total Imposter Syndrome. It was all so new to me, and I had to pretend to know what I was doing in order to make it. But I had a great experience. It got better as I progressed through college.

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

It's not a mistake that you are here. Embrace your college years because these 4 years will go by before you know it!!
