2020 First-Generation College Celebration

The kick-off celebration is Monday, November 9th with a photo booth, swag, and information for first-generation students and supporters. There will be a poster exhibit that consists of photos and bios of first-generation students, staff, and faculty displayed in the Setzer Student Center. Through out the entire month we will recognize first-generation all-stars for their campus and community service on our social media outlets. There will be a panel discussion for students, staff, and faculty and an additional one for staff and faculty. Our first-generation students and student leaders were instrumental in organizing shuttle rides to the polls along with the Student Government Association.
