Tell Students: First-Generation Celebration Week

The third annual national First-Generation College Celebration is Friday, November 8. (First-generation students are students whose biological parents did not complete a four-year college degree.)

In honor of First Generation week, the Dean of Students Office and the Restorative Justice Center are partnering to host the campuswide Community Circle “First Generation: Navigating the Unspoken Expectations of College” on Wednesday, November 6, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Campbell Student Union Social Hall. This event—which is open to first-generation students, faculty, and staff—will unpack what it means to be a first-generation college student, explore the identity, and connect through shared experience and resources. Lunch will be served after the circle.

RSVP online. We hope to see there!

In addition, Student Affairs will host an ice cream social in the Campbell Student Union for first-generation students on Friday, November 8, from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. Come and meet the departments of Student Affairs and enjoy some ice cream with a variety of toppings.

More information is available on the Center for First-Generation Student Success website.

Follow the celebration on social media at #CelebrateFirstGen and #CelebrateFirstGenBSC.
