First in Line Program
First in Line Program
Baylor's First in Line program is helping first-generation college students make a successful transition to campus life. Approximately one out of every eight Baylor students qualifies as a first-generation student. The First in Line program helps these students learn everything from terminology and how to meet with academic advisors to gaining an understanding of financial aid and campus office hours. Students participate in monthly workshops, a peer leader program and the First in Line Student Society. With your gift, you will help Baylor serve this important student group and enable first-generation students to fulfill their dream of earning a Baylor degree.
