First-Gen Warrior Club

A lot of new college students feel stressed out their first semester—and first-generation students can have an especially tough transition to college life. This is one reason why first-generation students tend leave college at a higher rate than other students.

The First-Gen Warrior Club was created to help you connect with other first-gen student who may be having similar college experiences. It’s an opportunity for all first-generation students to ask questions, find resources, make new friends and enjoy the campus experience at WSU.

The First-Gen Warrior Club offers free events throughout the year. Join us for events such as:

  • Club fairs
  • FAFSA, Food and Fun
  • Surviving Finals
  • Paws to Destress

These and other fun activities can help you get settled on campus.
