Did you know that approximately 21% of all incoming grad students during fall quarter are first-generation? First-gen graduate students are in the first generation of their families to earn a Bachelor's degree and are now working toward a graduate degree.

In recognition of National First-Generation College Celebration, all UW first-generation graduate students are invited to participate in this informal, social gathering!

Attend this free event to:

  • Snag a "I Heart First-Gen Grad Students" button while supplies last
  • Get one free professional headshot taken by Graduate School staff. Sign-in in person required—and on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Build community in person and online with first-gen graduate student peers across disciplines
  • Participate in a Poll Everywhere activity to share what being first-gen means to you
  • Enjoy light foods and refreshments
This event is a partnership between the First-Gen Graduate Student Advisory Board and Core Programs—Office of Graduate Student Affairs in The Graduate School.
