First-Generation College-Goers: Unprepared and Behind

Tennessee State University was recently mentioned in the article named, “First-Generation College-Goers: Unprepared and Behind.”  It follows the path of Nashville Native Nijay Williams, who is a first generation student.

It reports that TSU’s first generation student graduation rate is 29% while UT is just 16%. Mr. Williams goes on to say that he needed more support at TSU.

How was your experience at TSU? Did you receive enough support to finish your degree?
