First-Generation Mentoring Program
Are you first in your family to attend a four-year college?
You're not alone. Almost 1 in 4 undergraduate students at the University of Arkansas are first-gen. Many of our faculty members, including Chancellor Joe Steinmetz, are first-gen as well.
Are you a bit nervous about learning the ins and outs of campus life? We've got your back with the First-Gen Mentoring Program. We'll pair you with a faculty member who will meet with you, answer your questions and offer tips to help you succeed.
"Dr. Thompson would give me tips on time management and how to perform and still maintain the grades. He's just a real cool dude."
— Dekarius Dawson, vocal performance
