FIRST-GEN GRADUATE CORDS
The First-Gen Coordinating Council (FGCC) is proud to support our First-Gen students on their path to becoming the last first-gen college graduates. We have a gift for you.
A F1RST-GEN SHOCKER is one who identifies as the first in their family to attend college and obtain a bachelor’s, masters or doctorate degree. In recognition of this accomplishment the First-Gen Coordinating Council (FGCC) is providing all eligible graduates with a yellow and white braided cord to wear on graduation day. Please wear this cord to celebrate your accomplishment.
Those who are eligible for a bachelor’s, masters or doctorate degrees in the spring/summer 2021 can pick up their cords at their designated location. Please note that if you are a participant in a TRIO program your first-gen cord will come from your TRIO program office. Be prepared to provide your Name and WSU id for verification purposes.
Graduate School graduates please refer to the college of your degree emphasis.
