First-Generation College Students

SJU Office of Student Transitions

Adjusting to college is a big transition!  For students first-in-the-family to attend college, the transition is more challenging.   As a trailblazer, you may be on your own to develop study strategies and negotiate the freedom that University life offers.  We are here to help you successfully navigate your adjustment to college life and assist you throughout your years on Hawk Hill to make the most of your college experience.  The Office of Student Transitions located in The Perch (nearest to the Commuter Lounge) is here to help you engage at Saint Joseph's University and to connect to campus resources including advisors.  We can answer all of your questions!  Student Transitions also offers specific resources and programming for commuter and transfer students, and the first year experience program.
