First-Gen Aggies

The mission and purpose of the organization will be to assist first-generation students throughout their time at Texas A&M. This will be done by assigning mentors to freshman, having presenters give advice on managing finances throughout college, and, overall, being a community for first-generation students to feel comfortable in. Attending college for the first time in one's family can be very stressful for first-generation students, and the goal for First-Generation Aggies will be to help alleviate that stress. In addition, the organization will be accepting of all first-generation students.
