Nov. 8: National First Generation College Student Day

To celebrate First Generation Students at UND, we will be host a pizza party for First Generation students, faculty, staff, and allies on Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 5:30-6:45 p.m. in the Terrace Lounge (basement of Memorial Union).

Students will then move to the Ballroom to see Hypnotist: chrisjones. We will have buttons available for students, faculty, and staff to help recognize and identify with First Generation Students. If you are a faculty or staff member who cannot attend but would still like a button, please email Sydney Johnson at with your Stop number and a button will be mailed to you.

Approximately 20 percent of UND students identify as first generation (neither parent holds a four-year degree).
