College can be disorienting for undergraduates who are the first in their family to go to college, especially those from low-income backgrounds. Higher education is experimenting with new ways to make these students feel at home on campus and ultimately succeed in college.
This collection of articles and essays from The Chronicle examines these efforts. It includes:
• Tips to help first-gen undergraduates stay enrolled
• Ways to educate the students’ parents about college
• How Smith College improved grad rates among first-gen students
• How Princeton tries to make low-income students feel at home
• Why the Fafsa can be a challenge for students and their families
• Ways to communicate with first-gen students
