Description

First generation college students (FGCS) often face hardships throughout their college experiences, from matriculation to graduation. The FGCS population is growing every year, which increases the urgent need to properly serve them. The University of Dayton is known for making their students feel at home on their campus. Although FGC students currently represent only 6% of the undergraduate student population at the University of Dayton, the university will soon be seeing an increase in this student population with the addition of Flyer Promise and the UD-Sinclair Academy. The demand for services and resources that fit the needs of these students will become increasingly urgent. By utilizing interviews with five current first-generation students, this study highlights the ways in which FGCS navigate an unfamiliar campus environment.
