WE ARE F1RST GEN provides holistic support to students who will be the first in their immediate family to graduate from college. Through this program, we provide students with the tools and resources they need during their transition into college until their completion. We Are Building Up a Community of Scholars!


  • Beginning in September: Look out for the #WeAreFirstGen Movement at CBU!
    • Faculty and Staff who are first-gen college graduates will show their support by displaying the WE ARE F1RST GEN flyer! We are excited to have you here, and we are ready to connect with you!
  • TBD: Fall 2019 Meet & Greet with first-gen faculty, staff, and students
  • Nov. 8: CBU will join institutions around the country in celebration of our First-Gen BUCS!
