Support first-generation students today
First-generation college students who struggle with the transition to university life may abandon their education.
More than one-third of incoming students at the Newark campus are first-generation students, and everything we do revolves around their success.
The Buckeye Generation Learning Community (BGLC) was created in 2012 to improve the academic performance, retention rates and graduation outcomes for first-generation students. The program—which accepts 80 first-year, first-generation students annually—addresses four main areas: academic support, social engagement, peer coaching and financial support.
Give today to empower and inspire first-generation students at Ohio State Newark through the Buckeye Generation Learning Community fund.
