First-Generation Student Documentary Premieres

KSAL StaffOctober 23, 2014

A documentary about first-generation college students from across Kansas is premiering next month.

The premiere is planned for Nov. 4 at Kansas State University and will coincide with First-Generation College Student Awareness Week. “A Walk in My Shoes: First Generation College Students” also will be streamed live for those who can’t attend the premiere.

Experts say college can be overwhelming for first-generation students, filled with unfamiliar jargon and procedures. Frequently, parents who haven’t been through the experience themselves struggle to help their children.

Kansas State College of Education Dean Debbie Mercer commissioned the documentary to highlight the issue. About 40 percent of the university’s undergraduates are first-generation college students.

Several Kansas teachers and teachers-in-training are featured in the documentary.
