First-Generation @ Scripps November 2015 Newsletter

Posted: November 4, 2015

Dear Scripps Community,

Is it already November!? Among a myriad of deadlines at Scripps, November signals the upcoming application deadlines for many programs through Study Abroad and Global Education. This month’s issue of the First-Gen newsletter features various perspectives from first-gen students on the decision to study abroad or not.  Additionally, this issue includes SAGE advise on how to initiate and navigate the off-campus study experience.  We hope this issue not only serves to inspire first-geners who are on the fence about off-campus educational opportunities, but also sheds insight on the various factors that impact the feasibility of these opportunities.

Thank you so much to all of the contributing writers.

Happy reading.
