Cardinal First Events
We know that, as the first one in your family to go to college, you will want some help keeping track of what you need to do and what to expect. Starting with your first year, we offer events designed to guide you through every stage of your college journey.
First-year, first-generation students are welcome to join other first-year, first-generation students on the first Friday of every month for a free lunch and a workshop. You can read more details below.
We also offer Cardinal First Transition for new first-generation transfer students during their first term at North Central. It’s a series of four interactive lunch workshops to help make you comfortable and productive here at your new home.
First-generation events continue twice a term through your sophomore, junior and senior years with Cardinal First SophoMORE Suppers, Cardinal First Penultimate and Cardinal First Homestretch. The program culminates with a first-gen pinning ceremony before commencement—a special celebration for you and your family.
