Starting college can be an intimidating adjustment, even for those students who have parents or siblings to give advice and insight about college experiences. For first-generation students, having resources of trusted family members or friends to offer them that insight is so helpful to others as they start their college journey.
The First Gen Phoenix Learning and Living Community (LLC) was created by UWGB Housing this past year to make the transition easier and help students feel more comfortable starting their college careers. The LLC offers a multitude of resources; these include a first-year seminar, events, and programs for first-generation students. Most prominently, the LCC is centered around the residence hall.
