Happy First-Generation College Celebration Week!

It is officially Boston University First-Generation College Celebration Week, which celebrates the success and achievements of first-generation students across our campuses.

Boston University and the Newbury Center have marked the occasion with a week-long celebration program, full of events like workshops, social activities, seminars and networking opportunities. You can access a full list of the week’s ongoing events here.

To mark the week at Graduate Medical Sciences, we have compiled a list of resources for supporting our first-generation community, with additions from both on-campus and off-campus resources. We’ve also included profiles of our First-Generation mentors through the Community Catalyst Center gFIRST affinity group.

Additionally, don’t miss C3’s upcoming First-Generation CV and Resume Workshop, where you’ll have the chance to review your CV and/or resume one-on-one with a GMS faculty or staff member. Click here for more information and to sign up! Lunch will be provided.

Please email Sarah Rowan at srowan@bu.edu if there is another resource you’d like to see added to this list!
