Welcome to the first-generation webpage!

First-Generation, or "First-Gen", students are those whose parent(s) or guardian(s) have not completed a college degree, and are therefore members of the first generation in their families to attend college and earn a degree.

If you are the first in your family or community to attend college welcome to your first-generation community at Juniata College!

The purpose of this page is to be a resource to first-generation students, their families, and supporters to help them navigate the higher ed. system and find campus connections. Here you will find tips for first-gen students and their families/supporters, connections to campus resources and how they can help you be successful at Juniata College, and information on first-generation programs and events.
