Resources for Underrepresented Students

When you are looking at colleges, it’s important to find places where you can see yourself and feel like you could make yourself at home. It can be especially important if you have an identity or come from a background that is likely to be underrepresented on campus, such as being a first-generation college student, a veteran, or a member of the LGBTQIA+ community. 

When you are deciding which schools to apply to, check out what services they offer to support your community, such as summer bridge programs for first-generation students. Also research what kinds of groups you could join on campus, such as a MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán), a nationwide group that hosts regular meetings for Chicanx and other Latiné and Hispanic students. 

Below you can find resources specific to your background or community.
