2021 First-Generation College Celebration

UHCL plans to host a week of events beginning on Monday November 8th with First Gen Icebreakers, giving the community of students a chance to come together and learn more about each other and the resources on campus. Tuesday November 9th will be a collaboration with Counseling Services to discuss First Gen Anxiety and the current state of mental health knowledge and coping for this population. Wednesday November 10th is a collaboration with Career Services for First Gen Professionals in the Field Panel. Thursday November 11th, we will be playing Millenial Loteria. The Grand Finale will be a FIrst Gen Mixer where FIrst Gen Faculty and Staff are invited to mingle with students and enjoy a photo booth and appetizers. The entire week, we will be awarding First Gen backpacks purchased with grant money to select First Gen Hawks who win them at events.
