First Generation Allies

As a first generation college student, you may encounter certain challenges that many of your student peers won't. If not your family and friends, who is there to turn to when these challenges of being new to college life present themselves? We're here to help.

As first generation college students ourselves, we understand those struggles and have come together as a faculty and staff support system to provide guidance and to share our individual stories of challenges and successes in college. Serving as on-campus mentors for Alfred's first generation student population, we'll work with you to gain independence, foster continued engagement in your studies, and validate your unique place in our diverse living/learning community.

Don't be shy. Reach out to learn more about us and share what's on your mind.
