F1RST-Gen Friday: Trang Bui

What is a first-gen student? A first-generation college student is defined as a student whose parent(s) or legal guardian(s) have not completed a bachelor’s degree. A student who is the first person in their immediate family to attend a four-year college/university to attain a bachelor’s degree.

  • Focus on first-gen: This week we highlight Trang Bui, M.Ed. academic advisor for the School of Music, College of Fine Arts Advising Center.
  • Please note that graduation cords are available for fall 2021 first-gen graduates. Students should work through their college to obtain their cord, which is provided to them on behalf of the First-Gen Coordinating Council. Learn more by visiting the First-Gen Graduate Cords website.
