Our Provost, Dr. Jenny Zorn has adopted MIT's First Generation Program campaign at CSUB and we would like to share a few first generation college students with you.
We think you might be surprised to learn several of CSUB's administration and faculty are first generation college students!
Do you any of these stories speak to you? Are you the first in your family to attend or graduate college? In the comment section, please share your stories with us and encourage others to make education a priority!
