The First-Generation Office

The First-Generation Office (FGO) empowers first-generation students to thrive.

What We Do

The First-Generation Office is here to support all of Dartmouth's first-generation college students with academics, social belonging, and professional development. We spearhead serveral initaitves, including the First-Year Summer Enrichment Program (FYSEP) and the Prepare to Launch Program (PLP), which is currently in development.


The FGO consists of a group of intelligent, caring, and hard-working students and staff members. We work with students, mentors and mentees, friends and peers, staff, faculty, and even alumni, who come together to enrich each other's Dartmouth experience.
