We celebrate our first-generation family
—an important part of the FLC fabric!

What does it mean to be a first generation college student?

First generation college students are among the first in their families to graduate from a four-year institution in the United States. First gen students are trailblazers—forging a new path for their families and communities. Be proud of your distinction!

"Welcome! Prepare to meet diverse students, faculty, and staff at FLC! Many of us, like you, were the first in our families to go to college, so we truly know how important it is to connect with you and for you to connect with us. There are many opportunities on campus, so please get involved. You will find that everyone and anyone will want to connect and learn from you as well!"

Resources for first-generation students at FLC

Being the first also means that you may experience challenges navigating college and its confusing roadmap of new terminology, processes and procedures. We are here to help you be successful.
