The university recently celebrated National First-Generation College Student Day to recognize student achievement and remind the community about support resources for first-generation and low-income students at W&L.
First-Generation Low-Income Partnership
Jerónimo Reyes '21 says he is so immensely grateful for the gifts in his life, including a QuestBridge scholarship to W&L, that he wants to become a doctor and devote his career to helping others.
Senior Stephanie Williams '18 says W&L's First-Generation Low-Income Partnership (FLIP) gave her support to overcome obstacles and mentor other low-income students.
Edwin Castellanos '20 created a system that allows students to save money by borrowing donated textbooks.
Reese and two friends brought the First-Generation Low-Income Partnership to W&L, where it provides resources and a voice for students.
In Case You Missed It
The FLIP program at W&L was proposed by students who saw a need for more resources on campus.
Money Matters Week, sponsored by the First-Generation Low-Income Partnership at W&L, runs Oct. 1-6.
