One in four students at Colorado State University is first generation. The Department of History and the broader CSU community are committed to supporting the success of its first generation students (see CSU First Generation QR code). We know it is important to empower first generation students by sharing stories of their experiences and their successes at university. We also know it is important to innovate better pathways for student success. This fall, we invite you to engage in conversation with the CSU History department’s first generation community.


In the US less than 50% of students who start college ever finish, making America’s college completion rates among the worst in the world. Now there are more than 35 million Americans who started college but never finished, leaving them saddled with debt, and behind their peers in earning power. Featuring interviews with LeBron James, Howard Schultz, and our nation's leading voices in education, this penetrating and personal new film investigates America’s college dropout crisis through the lives of five diverse students as they fight for a second chance at opportunity and highlights the innovators reimagining higher education for the 21st century.
