Student Voices: Perspectives from First Generation Students on their Experiences in Lehigh's Classrooms

What’s it like to be a first generation student at Lehigh? On Thursday, October 11, four first-generation students shared their experiences in the CITL-sponsored Student Voices: Perspectives from First Generation Students on their Experiences in Lehigh's Classrooms. Topics covered ranged from advisor and professor relationships, textbook costs, family concerns, and Lehigh’s support infrastructure for firstgens.
