First Generation Empowerment

Day/Time: TBD

Facilitator: Shenette Scille

Being the first in your family to attend a 4-year college is a great achievement. However, first generation college students may face unique challenges, such as, being torn between college and home, feeling pressures to succeed, doubting their success, and trying to navigate personal and academic stressors. This group is for first generation college students to express and share their experiences and to support each other in navigating their college environment. Group members will be able to select various topics to explore and process. Call VCCS at 845-437-5700 or email Shenette at shscille@vassar.edu to schedule a pre-group meeting.
