TheFirst

Mission

TheFirst (formerly known as The Story Project) is for those who are first in their families to attend college. TheFirst provides opportunities for first-generation students to describe their journeys to higher education. It is a space for dialogue and community/campus outreach where students who are first generation are encouraged to document their experience though journal writing, sharing, and videotaping their stories. They hope to put a face on various facets of diversity on this college campus while telling their stories of perseverance and determination.

Ground Rules

1. As a member of TheFirst we accept everyone for who they are and come into each meeting with an open mind.
2. Respect.
3. As mentors/mentees of TheFirst, you need to meet once every 2 weeks.
4. If you are involved with the Community Program you must be committed and follow the rules given.
