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

Our first-ever FG Awareness Fair was a complete success! Over 150 people attended and we raised over $200 for the club through selling popcorn and puppy chow! Take a look at these photos.
