First Generation Students

Who

                          1st Gen Lopers

Did you know that 4 in 10 UNK students are first generation? A first generation student is one whose parents have not completed a bachelor's degree. It can be daunting for first-gen students to navigate their way through school, but you are not alone. Many UNK faculty and staff were also among the first in their families to complete a degree, and we are here to support you. Together let's break down boundaries, help you connect, and thrive on campus, and finish your degree to launch a successful career.
