Summer Welcome Receptions For First Gen Students and Families
Summer Welcome Receptions for New First Gen* Terriers!
Summer 2014 Welcome Receptions for New First Gen Terriers (and their families)
We are so happy to welcome our 2014-2015 first gen Terriers, incoming students for September 2014 and January 2015 who are the first, or among the very first generation, in their families to attend college.
We want to celebrate your achievements and welcome you and your family to our vibrant BU community! Please join us at one of our summer welcome receptions. Seize the opportunity to meet fellow first gen Terriers before you start your first semester with us. Our casual reception is also a wonderful way for you and your family to connect with University staff, faculty, and upperclass students who can answer any questions you may have. Many of us are BU alums or the first in our own families to attend college, and we are eager to share with you our love of all things BU!
Receptions are held Wednesday evenings in June and July. Register through EventBrite by August 1st at noon for the final reception of the summer, scheduled for Wednesday evening, August 27. If you are not able to make a summer reception, don’t worry–you’ll be receiving invitations to our fall events soon!
* First Gen – first generation college student; students in the first generation of their families to go to college–i.e. students whose parents did not earn bachelor’s degrees, although elder siblings and cousins may be attending college already or have earned four-year degrees.
