Being First: A Podcast for Bridging the First-Gen Gap

The Being First podcast lifts the voice of first generation college students while shedding light on the issues that these students face through dialogue about social capital and how to acquire it, candid conversations about the first-gen experience, and challenging the first-gen landscape of the university. Through recording sessions with stakeholders and students in this community, we’ve found that the thread that runs through every first is resilience and grit necessary to level the post-secondary playing field.
