dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to assist in the transition from high school to college for firstgeneration college students by creating a five-week program to educate these students on expectations of their collegiate experience. Additionally this project included workshops on services and opportunities available such as financial aid and campus life. The goal of this project was to decrease institutional departure of first-generation college students by increasing their knowledge of collegiate life. First-generation college students are an increasingly large population of students on college and university campuses. Because of that, faculty and staff need to meet the needs of these students by aiding in their transition to college. Through this workshop series, and the additional faculty mentorship program, students will be more prepared to navigate their collegiate experience, as well as have an increased understanding of the services and departments that are available to assist them.
