Decoding College: Stories, Strategies, and Struggles of First-Generation College Students - Kallie Clark

Decoding College: Stories, Strategies, and Struggles of First-Generation College Students


Decoding College is a slice-of-life, college exposure guide aimed at first-generation college students and their families. Decoding College provides a comprehensive guide to the basics of the college admissions, selection and enrollment processes while specifically focusing on issues unique to students of color, low-income students, and underrepresented students. Unlike the multitude of college guides available on the market today, Decoding College utilizes first-person accounts told by students on their journey to and through college to provide readers with fresh and vibrant illustrations of each concept. Decoding College doesn't just tell the reader about college, it lets the reader live college vicariously through the experiences of real students on real college campuses. Some stories are inspirational and some are devastating, but each and every one offers an inside glimpse into the challenges, struggles, and successes of those who dare to be the first in their family to go to college.

Aubrey -- "My parents don't even make $17,000 a year...It felt like I was putting a puzzle piece...like I'm jamming it into a puzzle, and it obviously doesn't work...I started to feel inadequate, like I couldn't be at Culpepper--like I was only there because of Affirmative Action."

Malik -- "In our group, I was the athlete...So it was sports first and then education for me...My priority needed to be focusing on college, but I didn't realize that until the end of my senior year. And then it hit, like, 'Whoa, you didn't get enough scholarships '"

Dominique -- "Being a first generation college student, I see a lot of people only pay attention to how much the school is. My mom was against me going here, because it was $50,000 each year. But, I had faith, and my grandmother had faith, that if I wanted to go here I would make a way."
