Expand Your Horizons (EYH) was developed to assist first generation students (first in their families to go to college) navigate the college experience.
This learning community is a one semester class that helps students adjust to campus life, connect with first generation peers — faculty, staff and students — and offers tips on how to balance social life with academics.
Additionally, EYH students are given information about how to address obstacles that arise from living simultaneously in two very different worlds. Sessions help students cope with everything from feelings of isolation and alienation in the campus environment to the stress of feeling distant from familial relationships because of their new experience.
EYH is open to any students whose parents have not attained a college degree.
