What has your experience as a 1st generation or low income student been like?
As a first-generation Latinx college student, there were many challenges I faced throughout my transition to UCSB. I experienced imposter syndrome, feelings of not belonging, and having trouble navigating on campus, but I overcame these challenges with the support of different resources and spaces on campus like EOP :)

Top tips for students:

Take advantage of all of the awesome resources offered on campus, always prioritize yourself and your mental health, find spaces on campus that make you feel safe and allow you to be your authentic self, and cherish every moment of your college experience!
