The change in conversation, from “can they” to “they will” go to college, adds a layer of complexity for first-generation college students. Crystal De La Riva, Academic Advisor and Promising Futures Program Coordinator at Chapman University, and Enrique Campo, graduate student at Chapman University focusing on marriage and family therapy, spoke on the Cultural Implications on Student Stress Management and Self-Care on Saturday, April 23 at NAC 1.
 
De La Riva is familiar with this topic as she was the first in her family to attend college, earning her B.A. in psychology and now working towards her master’s degree in marriage and family therapy at Chapman University. As a first-generation Chapman Alumna, she understands the learning curve associated with adapting to the college environment and seeks to help other first-generation students at Chapman University get the most out of their college experience.
