Welcome to the First Generation First Quarter Challenge!
The FGFQ program offers opportunities for students to succeed in their first year
at the university. FGFQ serves students who were the first in their family to attend
college. Our program was developed by Social Science students, staff, and faculty
who were also the first in their family to attend college. They know firsthand what
it takes to succeed at UCI and are eager to offer their support, guidance and friendship
to other first generation students as they settle into the university. You can read
this article for more information about the first generation experience. Check out the articles
written about our program featured in the Huffington Post and Good Morning America!
