2022 First-Generation College Celebration

Our celebration is a pep rally with guest speakers including students, staff, faculty, and administration. We celebrate, do cheers, have student organizations perform, videos of faculty and staff across campus with their photos and stories to share, as well as a photo booth, We're First gifts, and pizza to go boxes. There are yard signs celebrating famous first-gen persons and the successes of those on campus. Our highlight is First Gen Proud!
