Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The first panelist explores basic interpersonal and humanist steps that faculty can offer FG students who attend their classes and sit in their offices for counsel. It is important for faculty to remember what it was like to attend college their first two years of college and then add the uncertainty of being a first generation college student to that experience. FGC students encounter the normal developmental issues that all first-year and transfer student's face, but they have less chance of navigating through them without our support. The support that FGCS need is basic and consistent interactions. These basic interactions can occur in advising sections similar to the general student orientation given to all incoming students. Orienting FGCS on reading the catalog, selecting necessary courses, critically evaluating elective courses according to their needs, motivating them, mentoring them, referring them to other resources such as counseling or student clubs and other discussions can make all the difference to a first generation student who is struggling to understand the educational system.
