Proud to Be First seeks to engage and support first-generation college students. The definition of a first-generation college student is a student in the first-generation of their family to go to college. (Any student who identifies as first-generation is welcome.) The program assists first-generation students in making a successful transition to NYU while cultivating investment and engagement in the College and University Community. This is accomplished through creating supportive networks, establishing personal and academic goals, getting connected to campus resources and services, and meeting other first-generation students, faculty, and staff.
