"Getting my acceptance letter to UNC was the most proud moment of my life."
Jeremy is the first in his family to go to college. Now he fights for students like him.
If you're a first generation student, you may not have that extra support system, that experience, or that sweet hookup from Dad's fraternity.
First Generation college students make up the unheard 34% of college freshman. If we're being real, colleges and universities just don't do a good job supporting these students, so they often end up hustling and creating their own support groups. But that's not enough.
First generation students are speaking up and organizing. We've got a bunch of amazing first generation members in our ranks that are showing out for themselves, their siblings, and their community. Get to know them here.
Are you the first in your family to go to college? There's a home here for you.
