Example: What does it mean to be the first generation in your family to attend college? do you feel pressure to succeed or follow a particular path? Who are your mentors or where do you look for support when making big professional choices? In what ways does being the first to go to college empower and motivate you?
Will you and your facilitators need any materials/supplies for your dialogue? The Office of Admission will provide markers, poster paper, tape, nametags, etc.
Do you have any audio/visual or technical needs for the space in which your dialogue will be held?
