Colleges and universities throughout the country have innovative programs and mentoring to assist and support first generation students, as well as low income students. And while these two groups often overlap, their needs and challenges are often different.
Shonda Goward from George Washington University invites guidance counselors and college admissions personnel to discuss the different ways campuses are addressing these important audiences during #CampusChat at 9pm EST on March 21.
In addition to her work as an academic advisor at George Washington University, Shonda is founder of First Generation University, where she blogs with advice and resources to help first-gen students and their families understand and adapt to college life.
CampusChat is open to the public for participation. Anyone with a Twitter id can join the conversation by adding “#campuschat” to their Twitter message. Follow Smart College Visit @collegevisit for announcements about the chat. You're also invited to follow Shonda at @FirstGenU.
