Did you know that 34% of JSU's 2022 Freshman class identified as First-Gen?
In their families, they are trailblazers. Brave and determined, open to opportunities. Sources of pride around the family dinner table. Movers. Shakers. Go-getters. They are First-Generation Gamecocks, the first in their immediate families to attend college. Although navigating higher education as a first-gen can be challenging, they believe that anything is possible, and that their futures are as bright as their determination to persevere and succeed! We agree, and we are proud of and inspired by our First-Gen Gamecocks, whom we celebrate on November 8-9, 2022.
Throughout our First-Generation Celebration, we will shine the spotlight on JSU's first-gen students, faculty/staff, and alumni through events on campus and on social media outlets. Look for inspiring stories and videos and even share your own first-gen student story or first-gen alumni story with us!
