‘First-gen’ students and faculty connect over dinner

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 11.33.14 AMFirst-generation college students often experience university life differently than many of their classmates. Freshman Matthew Choi Taitano cherishes the bed in his dorm after sleeping for years on the couch or floor at home. The first time junior Dallas Nan’s family will visit campus will be when he graduates. Before his freshman year of college, Professor Robert George had never written a paper that was more than a book report. Such personal stories were shared during a dinner for Princeton University students and faculty who are among the first in their families to attend college.
