2018 First-Generation College Celebration

For the 2018 First-Generation College Celebration, UC San Diego is conducting several events to highlight the day. Student Affairs is hosting a campus wide signature event and photo opportunity. During the signature event a faculty member, a staff member, and an alum will be asked to participate in an inspirational fireside chat. The event will start with a poetry reading by a first-generation college student. Additionally, several departments will host micro events, such as a Grad Student Speed Friending Event for First-Gen Students, First-Gen Socials across the undergraduate colleges, and a First-Gen reception for engineering students.
