On Thursday, April 29 from 3 to 4:30 p.m., this is your opportunity find out how grad school can be an option for your future from panelists who have either been there and achieved their graduate level degrees or are still navigating their academic journey as first-gen students.

WHY: This is a great program for all first-generation Matadors who are thinking of pursing a graduate education and want to learn where to start and how to navigate the process, and why there is a lack of first-gen students of diverse backgrounds in higher education. 

BACKGROUND: Come explore how you can reach your graduate school goal as a first-generation graduate student at Beyond Bachelors: Experiences of Post-Undergrad First- Generation Students. Take advantage of this opportunity to discuss the historical context behind the challenges first-generation students face when pursuing higher education and explore resources that can help you.
