\furst jen\ noun
a trailblazer; a person who is among the first in their family to attend and graduate from college
There's something special about firsts. Many of our faculty, staff and alumni are the first in their families to graduate from a four-year college or university. As a first-gen student, you'll create your own history, and become part of Bucknell's.
At Bucknell, you'll be able to choose your own GenFirst! faculty/staff mentor as part of the GenFirst!@Bucknell Mentoring Program. There are lots of fun GenFirst! events each semester, as well.
