Being first-generation means that an individual is the first in their family to attend college. You are invited to join Sum Primus: I AM FIRST!

It will provide you with a Living and Learning Community and a network of support to ensure that you are successful academically and socially. The Sum Primus First Program provides you with a free one-week summer program where you will move into your residence hall early, get connected with a student mentor, learn more about our campus resources, enjoy team activities and meals, and make new friends. If interested in attending, please register here.
