“First Generation College Celebration”

The Retention, Outreach and Inclusive Student Services team, we would like to invite you to the “First Generation College Celebration” that will take place on Tuesday, March 12 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Margaret Tiplady Burgess Courtyard.

This celebration is being hosted by ROI in conjunction with the national celebration of first-generation college students. Last November, the Council for Opportunity in Education’s Board, in partnership with the Center for First-generation Student Success of NASPA-Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, asked college access and success professionals to join with TRIO programs across the country for the First Annual First-Generation College Celebration on November 8, 2017 — the Anniversary of the Higher Education Act (https://firstgen.naspa.org/events/2018-first-generation-college-celebration).

Our first annual celebration here on campus will include an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to build community and pride in sharing their first generation success stories. Part of the program will include an “Open-Mic” story sharing, as well as games, food and a photo booth! Attached is a flyer with more information – please feel free to display this in your centers as you wish, to help us spread the word and encourage student attendance.

Thank you, and we hope to see you there!
