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 KNeubauer12@winona.edu 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.
