Celebrating First-Generation College Students

Come participate in our First-Generation College Student Celebration!

Tomorrow (Nov. 8), we will be celebrating members of our campus community (students, staff, faculty and alumni) who are first-generation college students. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., stop by our table on the first floor of the Van Pelt and Opie Library to say hello, sign our banner, grab a treat and pick up a sticker celebrating first-gen accomplishments. At noon, we will be taking a group photo at the Husky statue (weather permitting) celebrating our first-gen students and their advocates. Everyone is welcome to participate and we will have limited supplies of “I’m First” T-shirts for our first-gen community.

In 2017, the Council for Opportunity in Education and the Center for First-Generation Student Success held the inaugural First-Generation College Celebration. Learn more about the event and its creation.

If you can’t make it to the event, you can request stickers by email at success@mtu.edu.
