"I Am First" Program


Whittier's "I Am First" Program is community of students, who are the first in their family to attend college. 

This community caters to the needs of first-generation college students. Whittier College recognizes a first-generation college student as someone whose parent or guardian has not received a four-year degree in the United States. 

The theme community will provide an environment where first-gen students will be able to remotely connect with their resident assistants. Students will get to participate in programming specifically designed to help them succeed in all areas of their college experience.
