Event description

Description

From President Nguyen

"...My family immigrated to the United States from Vietnam and I grew up in poor neighborhoods. Like you, I was the first in my family to attend college. My parents wanted to help me thrive in college, but they didn't have the knowledge of college life that other parents had. My classmates knew what resources existed, how to ask for them, and how to use them. I did not.

I did have one important asset - a network of teachers and fellow students who, like me, wanted to make the most of their college experience. We were determined to discover strategies for success in college. Most importantly, we were willing to share our knowledge and support each other as we faced different challenges during college and afterward.

Nearly one in four students at Foothill is a first-generation college student. This is what motivated me to start The First! campaign for first-generation faculty, staff, and students at Foothill.

Always remember that by enrolling at Foothill, you are changing your family's history. That's powerful stuff."
