Welcome to our Events & Activities Page
First-Generation College Celebration: November 8, 2019
The TRIO SSS Program at Southeastern Community College is encouraging all students, staff, and faculty to participate in the recognition and celebration of all our First Generation Students.
Contact the TRIO SSS Program for your "I am First-Gen" or "I am a First-Gen Supporter"
button, sticker, or office sign.
Our program is looking to hold various activities during the year to both recognize and support our First-Generation students, staff, and faculty.
Please check back for information on those dates, times, and locations.
Why support First-Generation College Student Success?
"Celebrating the accomplishments of our first-generation students across the country not only sheds light upon their vast abilities but fosters an environment of asset-based approaches to serving this
student population. First-Generation College Celebration creates an intentional conversation about this important population, recognizes institutional commitment to fostering student success,
and creates a platform for campus collaborations" said Sarah E. Whitley, Ph.D., senior director, Center for First-generation Student Success.
