First-Generation Students


“The First” is a bold and inspiring title but also one that comes with challenge and difficulty. If no one in your family has gone to college, you have an opportunity to blaze a new trail. You will not only achieve a new dream and change your world, but you'll impact the world around you, too. 

Georgia Tech is proud of our first-generation students and we hope their stories will inspire you on your path to earning a college degree.
