Abstract

This project was conducted to assist incoming First-Generation College Students (FGCS) complete the steps needed to get into college and the tools needed to be successful once there. Research methods included secondary source research. It was found that FGCS are in need of resources in high school to improve the likelihood of college completion. Students tend to engage in social media based “mentoring” rather than individual counseling. It was concluded that helpful tips and information can be provided to students through most social media outlets and students find it equally helpful as individual advising.
