A first-generation student is any student whose parents did not attend college. As the first in your family to pursue an undergraduate degree, you may feel anxious about what’s in store for the next four years. At Coker University, the college experience is all about you. We are here to cheer you on, connect you with helpful resources, and support your academic, personal, and professional success. It can be challenging to be the first, but first-generation students are tenacious trailblazers, and you won’t be alone in this.
