First-gen graduate students are invited to attend virtual movie nite, featuring the award-winning film Real Women Have Curves (PG-13, 2002), starring America Ferrera. Hang out from the comfort of your home and watch the movie with your favorite snacks! The watch party will include an optional live chat box. Use this feature to say hi to your peers or share your thoughts or reactions to scenes in the movie. RSVP for more details. This event is a collaboration between Core Programs—Office of Graduate Student Affairs in The Graduate School and the First-Gen Graduate Student Advisory Board.

 

A first-gen graduate student is in the first-generation of their family to earn a Bachelor’s degree—and now working towards a graduate degree.
