What has your experience as a 1st generation or low income student been like?
Being a first generation student has definitely impacted my experience, it has brought some challenges along the way; however, I've learned to grow through those challenges and build a community of support among different organizations and services at UCSB.

Top tips for students:
I encourage students to take advantage of all the resources UCSB offers, whether it be academic or well being resources they are all equally important and can provide a better overall UCSB experience.
