If neither of your parents have at least a Bachelor’s degree, you are a FIRST GENERATION COLLEGE STUDENT and we are celebrating YOU! You are in good company – at least 50% of students here on campus are First Gen too, as well as many faculty and staff.

Please join us on Wednesday, November 8th, 11am – 1pm in the Subway Food Court for a Celebrate First Gen party.
* Free coffee and cookies!
* Prizes for students who participate in the OPEN MIC!
(Sing a song, step up to the microphone and talk about what motivates you, who your role models are, offer advice to others, or simply say “I’m FIRST!”) Be creative and have fun!
* UNO Tournament begins at 12pm – prizes for the winners!
* Wear RED on November 8th to Celebrate First Gen!

In preparation for the event on November 8th, we are creating a slideshow of faculty, staff and students who are First Gen. *Stop by the TRIO office to have your picture taken (2nd floor Student Life Center) or look for us around campus and smile for our camera 🙂
