For the 2018 celebration, the entire BU community was invited to participate in a social media campaign celebrating our first-generation students, faculty, and staff. Individuals posted pictures and messages about what identifying as a first-generation student/graduate meant to them. There was an outpouring of support for the first-generation student/graduate community, and many notes of thanks to those who have offered support along the way!
