Office of First-generation Students

The Office of First-generation Students supports first-generation students by creating a sense of belonging and connecting them to campus resources. You are a first-generation college student if neither of your parents or guardians graduated from a four-year university. You are first-generation even if you have older siblings or other family members who went to college. 

Here are a few great ways to get connected:  
  • Check out the first-gen website for upcoming events 
  • Visit the first-gen student lounge located in Holtz Hall for a quiet place to study or hang out with friends 
  • Sign up to be mentored by a first-gen faculty member or to serve as a mentor to first-generation undergraduate students  
  • Contact the Office of First-generation Students at firstgen@ksu.edu for more information and ways to get involved.
