Are you a first-generation college student?

So are we.

At Bucknell, many of our faculty, staff and alumni are the first in their families to graduate from a four-year college or university.

In fact, wherever you see a "Come talk to me." poster, there is a friendly first-generation faculty or staff member who would love to meet and chat with you. Knock and introduce yourself.

We are thrilled to welcome you to our community of first-generation students, faculty, and staff. We have a fabulously fun, informative, and enriching schedule of events planned just for you.

Announcements about events and resources (funding, workshops, job fairs, alumni connections, etc.) are regularly posted to our GenFirst!@Bucknell Facebook page.

You won't want to miss out on having a GenFirst! faculty/staff mentor. No matter what class year you're in, or even if you already have a mentor/advisor, a mentor who, like you is also first-gen, is an incredible asset. To get started, check out our mentor profiles, select your top four choices, and then complete the Choose a Mentor Request Form as soon as possible so that we can partner you with a mentor.
