Contributed by Lia Munoz

What does it mean to be a First-Generation college student?

First-generation college students are students who will be the first in their family to graduate from a four-year college or university.

The First Look Program is designed for incoming first-generation college students to help with the transition to college and to welcome them to the first-gen community at IC.

Students will be able to move in early on Sunday, August 18th, become familiar with IC’s campus, and build on their talents to prepare them for their first year of college. 

There will be workshops on academic skills to prepare for college-levels courses, as well as learning about how to get involved on campus. 

Interested in participating?
The priority deadline for application submissions is Monday, July 12th
Students will be notified of their status via email on, Friday July 26th.
