First-Gen Week of Celebration

The University of Alabama held our first ever First-Gen Week of Celebration from November 6-11, 2023. Our first-gen community was recognized, supported, and celebrated with events all week, including dinners, networking events, student panels, receptions, parties, and more! Each academic college hosted an event to honor their first-gen communities and we all joined together with three campus-wide events as well. Social Media platforms across campus featured stories of first-gen successes, and banners were hung at the Student Center and Hewson Hall to increase visibility for our community. We will have a visual recap of our week coming soon. Check back with us!!
