Honors First-Gen Affinity Group

About the Organization

Find community at the Honors College and get involved

Our Honors First-Generation Group was founded in the Fall 2022 semester to provide a space for students who are the first in their family to attend and graduate from college. A first-gen student is one who neither parent or guardian has earned a four-year degree within the United States. We recognize that navigating the University as a first-gen student can be challenging at times and we want to celebrate your successes. WVU has an established First-Generation Office and our Honors First-Gen Group helps connect our Honors students to resources and other first-Gen students on campus. If you have questions or would like more information about this group, email us at
