Getting Involved

West Chester's First is here to connect first-generation students to resources on campus. One of the best ways to guarantee student success is through student involvement. West Chester's First encourages you to explore the many clubs & organizations, including First Gen Rams (open to all first generation WCU students) and Tri-Alpha (the first generation honor society).
