Aggie First Scholar Events

Mentoring Meals

Mentoring meals will be held on a monthly basis. Our on-campus, mentoring meals provide an opportunity for new and continuing students to connect, share experiences, and establish a learning community. On occasion, first-generation faculty and administrators will attend with mentor groups. These meals are sponsored by USU Dining and Pepsi.

Speaker Series

Each month during fall and spring semesters, the AFS Speaker Series is available for all members of the USU first-generation college community. The Speaker Series is designed to give students additional exposure to opportunities at the university and cover relevant topics, such as:

Resume Building and Career Workshops
