Bentley University's First-Generation College Celebration
November 8


2020 First-Generation College Celebration

The First-Generation Student Support Committee at Bentley University is inviting all faculty, staff, and students, particularly first-generation college students (those who parents did not complete a four-year degree) to a panel of distinguished first-generation Bentley alumni to learn of their experiences while attending Bentley as first-generation college students, the high and lows of their years at Bentley, and their careers since graduation. This is a special event in celebration of National Frist-Generation College Student Day, which is Sunday, November 8. The format will be a discussion of specific questions presented by a moderator followed by a question and answer session from attendees.

2019 First-Generation College Celebration

First-generation college students come from a range of backgrounds and represent an important part of the Bentley community. Being the first in a family to navigate the college system in the United States, however, also brings about unique challenges. The First Generation College Student Resource Fair which will guide students to a “Fully Loaded Bentley Experience” will be held on Friday November 8 to celebrate, learn more about important campus resources, and explore how to make the most of the Bentley college experience.
