First Gen Fridays

Are you a First Generation college student?

I'm First - First Generation College Student56% of institutions define first generation students as those where “neither parent or guardian earned a four year college degree.” So often, first generation students may not be aware that they are first generation or may question whether or not they qualify. UHCL does not want to reject individuals based on a definition. We would rather include and support those who self define and need the resources.

First Gen Fridays

First Gen Fridays is a supportive collection of experiences for our first generation students at UHCL. There are support meetings, trainings, and social events that all happen on Friday.

Check out our social media for more information on upcoming events, or contact Aja Rodriguez at for questions.
