FIRST TO GO TO COLLEGE
If you're the first in your family to go to college, or your parents did not graduate from college, you are considered a first-generation student. We are excited you are here! This website is designed to aid our first-generation students in their transition to college. On this page you will find the basic information you need to succeed at St. Thomas. We invite you to browse our website to learn more about ways to gain traction as a Tommie.
In 2016, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School and The University of St. Thomas joined forces to tackle questions of college access and success for first-generation college students. The goal of the project is to make positive change for first-generation students both here in Minnesota and across the country. Visit the full website or read the findings report.
