We are First-Gen @ CCA
These are the stories of first-generation college students at CCA. We are students, faculty, and staff. We are complex, multifaceted, unique, strong, and an integral part of the CCA community. We are learning, influencing, and guiding along with our communities. Our stories are about vulnerability, pride, struggle, ease, and growth. We share our stories so we will be the first of many to graduate from college and pursue our dreams through a creative education. We share our stories to increase awareness of the first-gen experience and to celebrate the accomplishments of our community.
CCA's 2021 First Annual First Generation College Celebration was held on November 8 and was sponsored by the President's Diversity Steering Group and the Office of the Provost. Logo by Dylan Spangler, Graphic Design.
