The Purdue community is invited to help celebrate the assets and strengths embodied by first-generation college students during this year’s Proud to be F1RST! Celebration on Tuesday, Nov. 7 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Purdue Memorial Union North Ballroom.

Everyone is welcome as we build community among first-generation college students, staff, faculty, and advocates while enjoying refreshments and giveaways.
