Demystifying Higher Ed for the First-generation Student: A Pre-college Program to Bolster Confidence and Success (ID 506)

Concerned that sophomore retention for first-generation students lagged behind the general population, Seton Hall University's Student Services Division created a pre-college program designed to help first-gen students and their families acclimate to this unknown environment. The summer program was crafted to bolster students' sense of belonging while unlocking the mysteries of university life. Presenters will describe the program, its learning objectives, and the evaluations and assessments in place for continuous improvement.
