We invite students, faculty, staff, and all First-Gen supporters to celebrate the successes of first-generation students at our 3rd Annual National First-Generation Celebration. This will be a virtual week-long celebration with opportunities to engage in virtual panels, share stories, and recognize the many unique ways that UTEP First-Gen students are achieving their dreams of attaining their degree.
Interested in hearing from current first-gen students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni?
Join us for three virtual panels sharing different perspectives on supporting our first-gen community. Panels are open to all audiences!
Nov 2 | 2PM - 3:30PM: Student Panel
Nov 4 | 5PM - 6:30PM: Parent Panel
Nov 5 | 11AM - 12:30PM: Faculty, Staff, and Alumni Panel
Share your Experience
We want to hear about your experience as a first-gen student. What motivated you to go to college and how has UTEP supported your journey? What advice do you have for incoming first-gen students?
Your story could be featured on the First-Gen website and on future campaigns. If you were the first in your family to graduate from college, share your story!
The deadline to submit is Friday, November 20, 2020.
