Connections: First-generation college students

Jun 7, 2017

We loved the recent New York Times interviews with first-generation college students, who carve their own path. This is our chance to hear the experiences of first-generation students in our area: how they made it to college; how they're faring; their biggest challenges. Our guests:

  • James Nguyen, St. John Fisher College class of 2019
  • Kimberly Statt, student at MCC
  • Bernard Rodgers,¬†RIT¬†class of 2017
