Josh Brown credits First-Year Seminar with adjustment to KSU

Just like Georgia Tech transfer student Josh Brown, about one-third of Kennesaw State University students are the first in their families to attend college. The former physics major has found his home in the department of sociology and criminal justice, where he is concentrating in cultural diversity studies.

In an interview for University College’s podcast, Brown talks about his role as the co-founder of the First-Gen Owls organization at KSU, which seeks to create a community for all first-generation students on campus.
