A Letter from the RHSA Director
As the Director of RHSA and on behalf of the entire RHSA community, I want to personally welcome you to UMass Lowell and congratulate you on your acceptance to our university.
UMass Lowell is an institution built through the aspirations of students like you, and professors who themselves were first-generation students. In fact, four out of every ten students who attend UMass Lowell are the first in their family to complete a four-year college degree. It’s a reality that we are all incredibly proud of.
In recognition of UMass Lowell’s commitment to our first-gen students, we created RHSA. We think you will find a community of support and success if you choose to join the Academy. Again, congratulations on having made it to this exciting moment in the story of your life. No matter your choice, it’s your story to write.
Director, River Hawk Scholars Academy
