Being the first within your family to go off to college can be quite difficult. It can be hard to navigate through college without the knowledge, advice, and tools to get through the college experience. This summit was a great event that Michelle put together for first-generation students experiencing or getting ready to experience college, and this will give students the ability to find confidence within themselves to succeed and stay motivated throughout their years at a college or university.
