Did you know that 40% of Kansas State undergraduates are the first in their families to attend college? That’s twice the national average. What would it be like to be the first to navigate your way through the college experience…alone? Over six months, we traveled to the hometowns of five current K-State students and three alumni who are not only the first in their families to graduate from college but are also in education. Their life stories of overcoming challenges, realizing their potential, and giving back are not only inspiring, but instill hope and provide examples for all students.
