Clubs I'm A First
For first generation students to not feel alone, to make sure that they are able to get the advice and help they need (instead of the "nobody told me")
The hopes are that the club is for first generation students or whoever wants to join to be a support group, similar to AVID In high school. There will be study groups for all subjects to help one another, informational meetings about how to take on college as First Generation students. First generation students frequently miss out a lot and didn’t realize that maybe I should have taken this course later or earlier, should not be afraid to talk to professors, should have taken advantage of the resources here, and not understanding simple things like work study. We want students to know they aren’t alone, but they have a support group to talk with, work with on class work, and be informed about important things at Westmont.
