Appalachian State University's First-Generation College Celebration
For the 2018 First-Generation College Celebration, two of Appalachian State University programs that serve many first-generation students partnered, along with the First Generation Student Association, where students were invited to share their stories on social media (mostly Instagram, linked to Facebook and Twitter). There was also a bulletin board in the Student Learning Center for students to "Fill the A" and sign if they are first-generation. Additionally, there was a sign for students to snap a photo with, sharing what identifying as a first-generation student means to them. In preparation for the 2019 celebration, Appalachian State University would like to partner with other entities across the campus and grow an event to include a panel and/or food to reach more students.
