First CWRU

Join a community for and by first-generation college students


About First CWRU

Founded in 2018 by students who recognized a need for an organization that supports first-generation college students on CWRU's campus, First CWRU acts as both a social hub for first-gen students and a resource for anything from interview prep to mental health awareness. We offer many events and fundraisers throughout the year. We've had speakers come in to talk about how to apply for internships, social hangouts where we serve food, a Jeopardy! gamenight, and even a banquet to celebrate the end of the school year and present the First-Gen Scholars Scholarship to the recipient. Whether you're new to CWRU or you're a super senior, we welcome you into the group with open arms!
