The UC Santa Cruz First Generation Initiative (https://firstgen.ucsc.edu) is part of a UC system-wide effort to build awareness and develop programming to address the needs of our first-gen community. We involve staff, faculty, and students who themselves are the first in their family to go/graduate from college as well as those of us who support first-gens.

T-shirts will be available for purchase at Quarry Plaza on Saturday, April 28 from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

Buy one, give two. Alumni can purchase a T-shirt for $25.00 and buy a second T-shirt that will be donated to a graduating first-gen student.
