First Gen


F1RSTGEN is a student led organization that thrives to encourage and support the first-generation student population here in West Texas A&M University. You do not have to be first-generation to participate in F1RSTGEN. Our organization promotes academic success and retention to WT students by providing a family oriented environment where students feel comfortable to seek assistance and participate on various events on and off campus.

Our organization has participated on various events that have occurred both on and off campus. Some of these events include: Work-O-Thon, Shack-O-Thon, United Way Day of Caring, Relay for Life, among others.

F1RSTGEN was recognized during the Honors Banquet as the Outstanding Organization of the Year for 2017-2018.
