The First in the Family (FIF) pre-orientation program invites incoming first-generation (first in the family to attend college) students to spend two and a half days before New Student Orientation connecting to campus and receiving important information to help navigate the college experience.
Students will meet current first-generation Carthage students, hear from a panel of first-gen faculty, and get introduced to their First-Year Advisors who they’ll work with throughout their entire first year on campus.
Participants in the FIF pre-orientation will engage in activities and exercises to lay a foundation for their success and connection to the college community. The weekend will also include fun and interactive activities to help students forge relationships with one another. These activities include, but are not limited to, a scavenger hunt across campus, team building competitions, and a night out bowling!
Please note: The application deadline for the Fall 2019 program has passed.
