What is FLI?
FLI is a popular acronym used in higher education for students who are first-generation and low-income students.
What is a first-generation student?
There are various definitions for this. We use a common federal definition, which is a student who neither parent received a bachelor’s degree from a US institution.
Is combed cotton the same as regular cotton?
Unlike regular cotton, combed cotton is softer because it doesn't have impurities or protruding threads of regular cotton. It’s also stronger because the combining process removes short fibers that are prone to fraying. This makes combed cotton softer and more durable, so you can enjoy your FLI Socks for years to come.
