First-Generation Graduates


Celebrate First-Generation Graduates May 9

Graduating from college is a tremendous achievement. If you’re the first in your family to graduate — that means neither of your parents hold a 4-year degree — celebrate your success at the First Forward Graduation Ceremony.

You’ll have the opportunity to elect a special mentor to cord you, or you can also choose to be corded by the Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. Participants will receive a unique teal cord, which represents new beginnings and bright futures. Light refreshments will be provided.

First Forward Graduation Ceremony

If you are not registered and would like to participate in the celebration, please arrive at 5 p.m. on May 9 in Jordan Ballroom to register. We look forward to seeing you there.
