What is F1rst In College?

F1rst in college is a free monthly e-magazine catered towards first-generation and low-income college students. Each edition will go live on the 1st of the month and will be centered on a relevant theme as determined by our email subscribers and the General Intelligences team. Our hope is that we are able to clear up some of the most confusing aspects of the college experience for students. Several of our team members are FGLI and will draw on their own experiences in this magazine. Furthermore, we will also feature FGLI students in their communities and interview them about their experiences to give them a voice. Please credit General Intelligences if using an excerpt extracted from any of these guides or magazine editions.
