Buckeyes First Summer Virtual Program
Starting July 15th – August 16, 2024

This program features a panel discussion with current Ohio State first-gen students as well as staff and faculty with first-gen roots. Incoming first-gen students will hear from the panel on their experiences and have the opportunity to ask their own questions. The panel will be followed up with small group break-outs with a first-gen peer mentor. In those small groups students will have an opportunity to discuss the questions and concerns further with a current student.

The program will:

  • empower you to be confident in your first-generation identity
  • give you a chance to ask questions and hear from students like yourself
  • help you start building connections to expand your network of support

Registration opening soon!
