USD to Honor First Generation Students
Attendants can engage in interactive first-generation trivia, write notes of encouragement and contribute to building a brochure depicting the first-generation student experience by sharing their feedback. Those who participate in a first-generation survey, will have a chance to win a raffle prize.
