“Working with FDU undergrads is awesome because you get to bear witness to someone discovering the joy of science for the first time, every day. ‘I think I’ll switch to micro’ and ‘Micro lab is the BEST’ — that’s music to my ears!”

RE: On Being the First

The Fall 2022 cover of FDU Magazine features first-generation students of all ages.

Countless alumni reached out with their own stories about being a first-generation college student after the Fall 2022 cover story. Here is one of our favorites!
