First Generation College Students
First Generation Resources
As a first generation student in college I remember thinking that the offices and resources were for other students. After a year or so I realized that these resources were for me. I encourage you to meet with the Bates Career Development Center (BCDC) staff starting in your first year and throughout your time at Bates. Many of the staff here were first generation students and understand the extra challenges sometimes faced. You do not need to have a plan to meet with us – call 786 6232 to make your appointment.
