First-Gen Tritons, Class of 2021 Virtual Recognitions


Congratulations First-Gen Grads! 

To complement your commencement experience, we would like the opportunity to feature graduating first-generation Tritons on a recognition website for graduates. This website will spotlight your accomplishments, give you space to share your experience as a first-generation student, and provide a unique opportunity to express gratitude to those who supported you along the way. 

Be a part of the UC-wide First-gen graduates class of 2021 community.  Tag us on social media #FirstGenUC, #NewUCGrad and #Classof2021 #CelebrateFirstGen #FirstGenForward

A link to the published website will be accessible on this webpage.

Please note that these efforts are meant to complement the UC San Diego commencements. For updates on campus-wide commencement information visit
