First Year Students: First Generation Students

This libguide is to support incoming freshman on library services.


Welcome First-Generation Students & Families!

Being the first or one of the first in a family to attend college is special and instills great pride within the student and family. We encourage students to remember that they have worked hard to get here and to make the most of this special time in their lives. We encourage parents/family to be proud and supportive of their students. At Bristol Community College  we want to remind first-generation college students* that anything and everything is possible use this guide as a handy tool to navigate your way around the different campuses. This guide will also suggest valuable resources to help you be successful at Bristol.



*At Bristol Community College, a student is identified as a first-generation college student if neither parent/guardian earned a college degree.
