First-Generation College Students Workshop July 16

Jul. 16, 2015

TAP students shared their experiences as part of the “First to College” workshop session in 2014. Incoming Webster students will have a chance to take part in a short workshop for first-generation college students, students are those whose parents have not attended a four-year college or university and/or attended a four-year college or university. The workshop will take place on July 16, at 7 p.m. in the East Academic Building, room 253/262 and will be led by Corey Hawkins, Multicultural Center and International Student Affairs coordinator.

Typically, the workshop is only reserved for first-generation students in the Transition Academic Prep (TAP) summer program. This year, the invite list has been expanded to include any self-identifying first generation student, including new transfers. Topics will range from financing education to relationship building. The workshop will be the first of similar events as Webster University creates new initiatives to its support first-generation student population.

Academic Resource Center staff Erin Bullerdieck and Shelley Wolfmeyer coordinated the TAP summer program.
