The inaugural First-Generation College Celebration took place on November 8, 2017, the 52nd anniversary of the Higher Education Act of 1965. First-Generation Students are those who are the first in their family to earn a four-year college degree. The University of Minnesota celebrated this day by encouraging students, staff and faculty to share their first-gen stories. Take a look at some of their inspirational messages here!
