What is First-Gen Week?

National First-Gen Celebration Week is a time for Metropolitan State University of Denver to celebrate our trailblazing students.


First-generation students are not only the first in their families to earn a bachelor’s degree but are strong, powerful, and resilient leaders. First-gen students are dedicated to pursuing their academic goals, and we are proud of all they have accomplished.
