First-Generation Student Resources

Building a sense of belonging

Being a first-generation college student can be difficult. Linfield First is a new program that deepens the ties between you and our community.

Our team of current students, faculty, staff and alumni are here for you through a series of luncheons, a mentoring program, pre-orientation programming and scholarship opportunities. Together, we explore needs, strengths and community resources that will empower you in your college career.

Given our history of providing access and economic mobility, we are a community dedicated to the success of all our students, regardless of background, by providing rigorous opportunities to grow socially, intellectually, and professionally. 

The success of our efforts inspires us to build an inclusive sense of community where students can live out our mission of connecting learning, life, and community.
