First-Generation Initiative gathering attention

Saint Mary’s First-Generation Initiative is getting some attention through its new public relations efforts. See the latest posting at Additionally, traffic on FGI’s new website,, has greatly increased. The site features engaging social media and email tools, as well as a special feature to subscribe to the latest news and stories.

At the bottom of each story is a "share" icon that contains links to share the story through social media or to e-mail the story to a colleague or friend.

Additionally, the SMU community is invited to subscribe to updates directly on the website so that everyone can learn more about this program and the inspiring stories of SMU’s FGI students.
