First Generation Monarchs Celebration Mixer

On November 3, 2021, the campus community will kick-off the Celebration with a Mixer from 3:30PM to 5PM located in the King's College Campus Center, Snyder Room.

  • 5 Students will win a $100 gift certificate to the Campus Bookstore
  • 1 Student will win a DELL Inspiron 14 3000 - 14 in. display laptop—Bring a friend: students who bring a student with them will receive an extra entry to win the DELL laptop
  • 1 Student will win an amazing painting by our very own Ms. Mary Wood
  • Many more students will win an array of prizes, including gift certificates. Students come by, create your own face mask, grab a goodie bag, and gain insight about First-Generation Monarchs and other important campus resources

You’ll also have a chance to let us know if you’re a first-generation student (a student whose parents or legal guardians do not have a four-year college degree).

All events are open to the entire campus community—everyone is encouraged to join the celebration. The celebration flyer is available as a PDF download here.

The event was a huge success! Thank you to the Committee, those who joined the Celebration, and our prize donors. Check out the full photo album on Flickr.

The fun continues Thursday, November 4th on Zoom

Four resilient first-generation faculty will share their experience on how they went from student to professional on our “First to Finish Faculty Panel” from 12:30PM to 1:30PM

At 4PM, four dynamic students will discuss what it’s like being first-generation at King’s College on our “First-Generation Voices Student Panel.”
