First Generation Students
Regents’ Scholars Initiative

The College of Liberal Arts welcomes and celebrates first generation students—the pioneers who are the first in their family to earn an undergraduate degree at a university. Almost 30% of all Liberal Arts’ majors are first-gen.
Your first-gen status identifies you as a pathfinder. You’re the first explorer in your family who is seeking to use their intellectual and interpersonal talents to accomplish academic, professional, and social growth in pursuit of a degree.
That monumental journey probably seems quite formidable. That’s why the College is dedicated to creating networks that give you the chance to get the answers you need, providing opportunities for you to meet with and be mentored by first-gen college faculty, advisors, and alumni, and ensuring you know that the College of Liberal Arts is your partner in your current academic and lifelong pursuits.
Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts.
Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid.Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
