Unlike any other college student, a first generation college students has a unique path to get to college and college experience. Many first generation college students are part of a minority group which adds to their struggles to earning a degree. Like myself many first generation college students who are part of a minority group has the initial struggle of being torn from college and home. To many parents of first generation college student it can be a real uncomfortable transition that they don’t know much about. In the eyes of the students, we look at college to help our families while our parents see it as a sign of rebellion.
