What should first-generation college students know before they head to campus?
A new social media campaign organized by Better Make Room is encouraging college counselors and others to share their wisdom on Twitter.
Contribute your own tips by using #AdviceForFirstGen and #BetterMakeRoom in your tweets.
Tips already submitted include:
- Find a mentor.
- Don’t forget to renew your FAFSA every year.
- When stressed, stop and smell the roses.
The campaign launched earlier this month. Organizers hope the tweets will become a source of information and support for first-generation students.
