First to FINish
First to FINish is Simmons University's first-generation student support program. A first-generation student is defined as having no parent or guardian having received a 4 year degree from the US.
Simmons University has been recognized as a First-Gen Forward institution by the Center for First-generation Student Success, an initiative of NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education and The Suder Foundation. The First-Gen Forward designation recognizes institutions of higher education who have demonstrated a commitment to improving experiences and advancing outcomes of first-generation college students.
Throughout the school year, First to FINish will be hosting events to support first-generation students and build up the first-generation student community. If you're interested in being on the email list for these events, or if you have any questions throughout the year, please fill out this form.
