First-in-Family Programs (FiF) serves Columbia’s first-generation undergraduates (and those that identify as first-gen!) in order to help them thrive in the college environment. We offer seminars, academic advising, social events, and informal support to build community and help all Columbia students excel. Questions about joining the First-in-Family First Year Seminar or want to learn more about FiF programming? Feel free to email us at email@example.com.
The FiF First Year Seminar will be held virtually this year and a link will be provided to those who sign up. All other programs will be TBD until closer to the date of the event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the event to confirm location.
