The Center for Student Opportunity’s Opportunity Scholars blog welcomes 10 freshmen who have become the first in their family to attend college. These new fresh faces will join 20 student bloggers who together will be recording their college experiences, ranging from the bad to the good. Most importantly, the newly joined bloggers will offer advice to college-bound students on preparing for college.
