Beginning with the President, and including two-thirds of the members of her senior staff, Hamilton has more than 300 members of the faculty, staff and student body who themselves represent the first generation in their families to attend college.
Contained on this site are inspirational reflections from the Hamilton community. In addition to serving as reassuring narratives, these stories identify people willing to serve as resources and mentors for our newest "first-gen" students.
MP2 facilitates relationships among first-year international, first-generation (first in the family to attend college) and historically underrepresented students and experienced student mentors.
In November 2014, the Days-Massolo Center hosted two screenings of the move "First Generation" followed by discussions about supporting first generation students at the Hamilton College campus.
