Welcome Class of 2024!

Congratulations on your acceptance to Northwestern! We are thrilled to welcome all of our first-generation college students, lower-income students,(FGLI), and/or Undocumented/DACA students! We are here to help ensure you feel seen and supported throughout your time at Northwestern, especially during this challenging time. We are all experiencing a collective trauma with COVID-19, and the trauma of racism and anti-Black violence, discrimination, and oppression. Now more than ever, Student Enrichment Services, or SES for short, is here to help you as your “first stop shop” at Northwestern. If you have questions about ANYTHING – from how to get connected with other FGLI students to simply figuring out Northwestern - we’re here to help. Contact us through the SES Interest Form and be sure to follow us on Social Media to stay up-to-date with the latest happenings in the FGLI Community at Northwestern! 

We also encourage you to check out our entire website and follow us on social media, but we want to call your attention to a couple key supports and resources:

Northwestern in Chicago is going virtual! This means, ALL incoming FGLI and/or undocumented/DACA students from anywhere in the world will be able to participate. This event typically takes place at the Mexican Museum of Fine Arts and brings together current students, staff, faculty, and alumni to engage in casual conversations around the first-generation, lower-income, and/or undocumented/DACA experience at Northwestern, and provides information on topics ranging from what to expect as a FGLI student to answering questions about what resources exist across campus. 

In light of COVID-19, we're excited to offer a virtual format for this program. Please stay tuned for dates and details.
