FirstGen Network

Are You First?

FirstGen Network Banner

Did you know that one-third of Detroit Mercy freshmen are first-gen students? Many Detroit Mercy professors, administrators and staff are first-gen graduates as well. If your parents did not graduate with a bachelor’s degree, you are a first-generation college student and we want you to join the network. FirstGen Network meets twice a month for food, conversation and community. FirstGen Network is sponsored by the Student Success Center.
