What is First To Go?

First to Go Class of 2019


The First To Go Program at Loyola Marymount University offers first-generation college students valuable resources and opportunities for their academic, professional, and personal growth. It is our mission to reinforce and build upon the unique sources of cultural capital first-generation college students bring to the university in order to create a community that promotes and progresses our students' successes during their tenure at LMU.

We aim to accomplish our program’s objectives via five pillars: Transition, Community Building, Academic Engagement, Preparation for Post-Graduate Success, and Advocacy for Institutional Transformation.
