first generation students walking on campus

Celebrate being a First-Gen Warrior!

Nearly half of the students at Winona State University are First-Gen Warriors, where neither parent has a 4-year bachelor's degree. We are happy you have chosen WSU as your college and our entire community is here to support your experience!

Please consider checking out the First-Gen Warrior Club. You can attend a meeting (attendance doesn't obligate you to join the club) or you could contact the club president, Katryna Neubauer, at for information. Being a member of the club will provide you support and will give you an opportunity to help and support other first-gen students.

Events Information

Come to the First Gen Warriors Awareness Fair at the Gazebo (East Hall if rain) to eat food, play games for prizes, listen to live music and have fun on Thursday, September 11 from 2-4pm!
