First Generation College Students @ Michigan
The first generation in their families to attend college, “first-gen” students are familiar with breaking new ground but still benefit from a strong support system. Because of U-M’s large, decentralized campus, a mechanism was needed to build community and provide resources to this group of students.
Working directly with first-gen students themselves, Michigan Creative designed and built an attractive and engaging website that offers information on programs and services, news and events, and more. The site also includes the “Our Stories” section, a space that enables first-gens to share their experiences with their peers.
