#FearlessFirst: Celebrating First-Gen Students on 11/8

On Friday, November 8th, the Academic Achievement Programs will host the 3rd annual #FearlessFirst celebration. The goal of this event is to foster a sense of community among the first generation population on campus and to celebrate and recognize their accomplishments. 

We invite students, faculty and staff who identify as or support first generation students to stop by the Stamp Student Union (outside the entrance closest to the Nyumburu Cultural Center) between 11am and 2pm. During this time, learn more about famous first-generation students, grab some hot chocolate and pick up #FearlessFirst swag to help celebrate the achievements and unique strengths first generation students bring to campus.

If you are not able to attend, but would be interested in further participating in supporting this population, please contact us at fearlessfirst@umd.edu or CLICK HERE to fill out an interest form. We look forward to seeing you there!
