UC Santa Barbara

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

Exciting and full of new possibilities, with no idea I would one day pursue an academic career.

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

My worse grades were in the first quarter and year, so hang in there as you find your footing and learn to navigate academia and create new relationships.
