Reminder: Office of First-generation Students to host graduation celebration May 12

Submitted by Rebeca Paz

The Office of First-generation Students, along with several campus partners, will celebrate this year's first-generation spring and summer graduates. First-generation graduates, their families and the K-State community are invited to a graduation celebration from 7-8 p.m. Friday, May 12, at Forum Hall in the K-State Student Union. 

The office recognizes the importance of celebrating its students' accomplishments and the significance of this milestone for students, their families and support systems. The graduates in attendance will receive a green cord, symbolizing their resilience, to wear to commencement as well as other small tokens of congratulatory sentiment.

Thank you to the following partners for your valuable contribution and generosity to make this event possible: K-State Alumni Association, Career Center, College of Arts and Sciences, K-State First, Educational Supportive Services, geography and geospatial sciences department, Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging, and Office of Student Accounts.
