From financial aid and course registration to unusual terminology like “registrar” and “provost,” the college experience can be intimidating and difficult to navigate. It’s even harder for first-generation students, who don’t have college graduates in their families that they can go to for guidance and advice. New and expanded programming at Ithaca College aims to support first-gen students throughout their time on campus.

The First Generation Center is supported by a fund established by Ithaca College Board of Trustees Chair Dave Lissy ’87 and his wife Suzanne Lissy ’88, through the Lissy Family Foundation.
