First To Go

At Loyola Marymount University, First To Go is not just another academic program but a community!

Do you identify as a first-generation college student? Join the larger First To Go community any time during the academic school year!


At LMU we identify first-generation college students as any student whose parents/guardians have not completed a bachelor's degree in the United States (this includes students whose parents/guardians received a degree from an international college/university and students whose siblings will attend, currently attend, and/or attended a college/university).


First To Go’s mission is to help first generation students’ transition into college by connecting them to the first-gen network at LMU, in addition to the broader university community, i.e. fellow peers, faculty, professional staff, and alumni mentors. Once in the program, students are provided with a wide-range of opportunities that enrich and encourage their personal, professional, and academic development.


We invite you to browse our website to learn more about our program and the services we provide. For more information, please contact FirstToGo@lmu.edu, (310) 338-76777 or visit us in Daum Hall, 2nd Floor.
