2019 First-Generation College Celebration

In 2019, the University of Texas at Austin looks to build on the success of the 2018 First-Generation Day by expanding to a full week of programming. From Monday November 4 - Friday November 8 the University of Texas at Austin will promote events and other services for First-Generation Longhorns. These events include a networking mixer for first-generation alumni, college and school specific celebrations, career engagement for first-generation Longhorns, a preview of UT Austin for first-generation prospective students, and the second annual First-Generation College Celebration Day again at the university tower. Students will also share their stories on social media on their first-generation identity and share how proud they are to be a First-Generation Longhorn.

The University of Texas at Austin will host a university wide celebration full of activities for first-generation students, faculty, staff, and alumni at the main building on campus. Students will have the opportunity to join in on games, celebrations, and photo booths/video testimonials for what being first-generation means to them. The university will hold a large group photo of all first-generation students, faculty, and staff.
