This post was originally published on this site

UC Santa Barbara’s newest first-generation college students gathered inside the Student Resource Building Wednesday, September 26 for a welcome event designed to connect them to first-gen faculty, staff and graduate student mentors, campus resources and cultural student organizations.

The annual event, organized by the university’s ONDAS Student Center and Transfer Student Center in collaboration with the Educational Opportunity Program, brings together students from diverse backgrounds, providing them with resources that make them feel welcome as they settle into UCSB and will help them succeed throughout the rest of their college careers.
