You may be the first in your family to attend—and graduate from—a four-year college or university, but you’re not alone. In fact, hundreds of students, staff, and faculty members are or were first-generation students. WPI's First Generation Success Program is here to help you get connected to other first-generation students, as well as the academic and social resources you need to help you achieve your goals.
In addition to one-on-one support and advising, first gen centered programming such as networking events, movies, dinners, panels, and First Friday events are all available for students to take advantage of. Below are a number of resources to answer questions you may have.
