First Generation Honors Association

The First-Generation Honors Association (FGHA) assists first-generation HC members in their transition to Honors College and Michigan State University and fosters their continued success in college. We are committed to building a sense of community among First Generation Honors students. The group consists of First Generation students and advocates (faculty/staff who strive to support first generation HC students).


The association offers:

  • Unique programming tailored to needs of first generation HC students,
  • Academic/personal support,
  • Social events and networking with students, faculty, and staff,
  • Leadership opportunities, and
  • Connections to campus resources and opportunities.
