We are so happy you are at the University of Michigan and want to help you along the way. Being the first to achieve something can be intimidating but you have worked hard to get here and we are proud of you. As a first gen, we want to connect you to resources and the first gen community on campus which includes students (undergraduate & graduate), staff, faculty, and alumni.
