Join the THR1VE Program for Free T-Shirts, Fall Food and Fun

    November 1, 2019

    Join the THR1VE Program in celebrating the successes of our first-generation students, faculty, staff, and alumni during The University of Scranton's inaugural National First-Generation College Celebration on Friday, November 8, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the second floor of the DeNaples Center!

    This year, The University of Scranton joins hundreds of colleges and universities across the country in commemorating the 54th anniversary of the Higher Education Act of 1965, which increased access to higher education for millions of Americans.

    Our inaugural celebration will take the form of a Fall Festival, complete with your favorite fall foods. We will also have a photo booth and some first-gen giveaways, so you can proudly showcase your #FirstGenRoyal pride!

    Additionally, the first 100 students to participate in our celebration will receive a limited-edition T-Shirt!

    Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities and sign up for Scranton Connections, a unique platform maintained by the Center for Career Development that allows students to connect with first-generation alumni mentors in various professions.

    We also encourage faculty and staff who identify as first-gen grads or advocates to pick up a THR1VE pin at the event. We hope that you will wear this pin proudly throughout the day, while sharing your experiences as first-gen graduates or advocates with our students.

    Don't miss your opportunity to participate in this historic celebration of all that our first-gen Royals have accomplished!
