Wofford Firsts

first gen forward

Welcome to Wofford College first-generation college students! Wofford Firsts seeks to provide academic, social, and overall student success support for the nearly 15% of first-generation college students who call Wofford home.

First-generation college students are defined as students whose parent(s)/guardian(s) or those they spent a significant amount of time with while growing up have not completed requirements for a bachelor’s degree. Being a first-generation college student is a proud accomplishment and momentous achievement that should be celebrate and supported.
