First Around the World by GVSU TRiO Students
A Collection of Study Abroad Experiences from First-Generation College Students
This book is a compilation of essays about the study abroad experiences of first-generation college students and TRIO staff. TRIO students and staff at Grand Valley state University offer compelling narratives of personal experiences and advice stemming from being first-generation college students studying abroad.
It is our hope that these personal narratives will resonate, empower, and educate more first-generation college students to study abroad. It is also our hope that these essays increase dialogue and support on campuses regarding the barriers that many first-generation students face in their journey of international educational experiences.
