Almost 46% of NAU students on the Flagstaff campus identify as first-generation, meaning neither of their parents or guardians earned a bachelor’s degree. First‐generation students are trailblazers, forging new paths for themselves and their families. At Northern Arizona University we are striving to become a campus of excellence for first‐generation students.
