First Generation Celebration Day

We will be holding a First Generation Celebration Day every academic year. Follow us on Instagram to stay up-to-date with First Generation events.


Our 1st annual First Generation Celebration Day was March 17th, 2022. We kicked-off the day with a scavenger hunt across campus through our Instagram @uncaembark. We gave away tickets for free coffee and other goodies. Our main event of the day was a panel and free lunch with First Generation Staff and Faculty members. We also spent the day highlighting First Generation stories on our Instagram page and giving away more prizes.
