First-Gen Proud Campaign

News Story

Are you a first-generation college student? Want to share a little bit about your story with the entire Pace Community? We want to hear from you! Submit to be featured on Orca screens across both campuses.

As a first-generation college student, you have a unique story to tell. Your experiences here at Pace are important, and the Division of Student Success wants to share it! To do this, they’re rolling out a campaign called First-Gen Proud where they highlight Pace students, faculty, and staff who were the first in their families to attend college. They want to know:

  • >> What does being first-gen mean to you?
  • >> Why are you proud to be first-gen?

If you’re interested in participating, please email the Division of Student Success team. Your quote (and picture!) will be featured on all the OrcaTV screens across both the PLV and NYC campuses. Share your story and inspire others today!
