Did either/any of your parents complete a four-year college degree? If you answered no, then you are a first-generation college student. Being the first in your family to attend college is something to be proud of!  Welcome to campus--we’re glad you’re here!

Whether you are a new incoming student, returning for another year, or transferring in from another campus or university, the Student Life Multicultural Center is here to offer you a home away from home. We look forward to meeting you at the First-Gen Welcome Fest on Saturday, August 28 at 3:00 p.m. in the Student Life Multicultural Center, located in the Ohio Union.

Come meet other first-gen students, check out the Center, learn about the Buckeyes First student organization, and other campus resources!
