First Generation Students at MSS 


First Generation students are those who are first in their family to attend college. These students bring many strengths to their college experience but may also face specific obstacles in their path to success. Fortunately, there are an increasing amount of resources available for first generation students. Since 2015 the Midwest Sociological Society (MSS) has provided conference programming, networking and resources on this important issue. In 2017, MSS authorized a task force to gather regional resources of first generation students. These resources are now available to download here.
