About FGEN at UP

Welcome to our FGEN community at the University of Portland. We are are pleased that you are here on The Bluff! Whether you are entering college for the first time or are returning to campus, we want to congratulate you on the successes you have had in the past, and know that you will THRIVE as a member of our Pilot community!

Our first generation community serves as a resource for all FGEN students and families to ensure a smooth and successful transition from high school to college life and beyond. All students find that they are unfamiliar with some aspects of college processes, language, programs, and resources, often leaving all with unanswered questions. With this web page we would like to reach out and provide information about different programs and events on campus and general campus information that you may be unaware of. The information on this web page is aimed to help with your academic, financial, and social success during your time at UP.

Throughout the academic year we sponsor workshops and social events as well as highlight events of interest.  We have several leadership opportunities that allow FGEN students to work on programming within the FGEN community.  We would encourage you to browse through the resources available on our FGEN website to get a better sense of our FGEN community. 

If you are the first, or among the first in your family to go to college, we are thrilled you are calling the University of Portland home!  Welcome to our vibrant and energetic University community.  We would love for you to join us and participate in the events we offer throughout the school year.
