This book gave accounts of first generation students. There were real life accounts and stories that helped the reader to understand where each student was coming from. I would recommend this book to any student who is first generation. It helps to read other people's stories and experiences to know that you are not alone.
"First in the Family" offers sound guidance, from first-generation college students, on adjusting to life after high school.
I recommend this guidebook to those who are struggling with the arduous task of applying to colleges, and who would appreciate the insight therein.
I was given this book for my new job as the Lead Academic Coach of the Buckeye Generation (1st gen college students). I can't tell you how many amazing quotes, charts, documents, ideas and inspirations that this book is filled with. Truly inspiring and enlightening.
