First Generation Students & Alumni

Navigating college and career is complex for all students, but can be especially challenging if this experience is new to you and your family. Many of the team members within Career & Professional Development were first in their families to go to college, so many of us can related to your experiences!

We recommend that all students meet with their career advisor during their first year at DU. During the meeting, the staff member will learn about your professional interests and ensure you are taking the right steps throughout your college experience to set you up for success with your goals. We can also tell you about the role of Career & Professional Development so you understand how we support you throughout your college journey.

Check out our below article Career Tips for First Generation College Students which includes career tips as well as questions you can ask your career advisor.
