Upcoming First Generation Events

As part of the National First Generation events (Nov. 4-8), UCR will be hosting a series of activities and programs to celebrate our first-generation communities. The week starts with first-generation stories on KUCR 88.3FM, and expands to presentations and discussions on financial wellness, career exploration, and time management. A main feature is the Student Engagement Fair on November 7th from 11am-2pm on the bell tower lawn which will feature over 20 campus student engagement and involvement offices with a variety of high impact opportunities to explore. We hope to see you out at the First-Gen Week's events!
