The Let’s Talk series is meant to provide a safe and open space for first gen students to talk and discuss amongst each other about in-depth topics. Let’s Talk is meant to create a bond, a sense of family, and be a moment of verbal liberation for students. First gen students are meant to walk away feeling empowered and know that their thoughts, views, and voice matters to the first gen department and overall, at the MSU Denver campus.
