Congratulations to the many First-Generation College Student Graduates from UMBC! Commencement is this week, and First-Gen graduates have been picking up their regalia and their First-Gen cord.
The tag reads:
It's Official #FirstGenGrad
Being a first-generation college graduate is a big deal! You are the start of a whole new legacy and have claimed your future. UMBC is proud of to have been part of your journey and encourages you to extend beyond!
You are #First in so many ways. This graduation cord recognizes your outstanding achievements and its colors are intentional:
Blue represents the wisdom that you have acquired throughout your college career.
Green represents the enormous growth and progress that you have exhibited in both your character and your academics.
Congratulations #UMBC2019 #UMBCFirstGen
