Are you first in your family to graduate this December?

Filed under Administrative, Information Tech on December 5, 2016.

Being the first in your family to graduate from college is a big deal! Your younger siblings, friends, mentors, community and family members must be very proud of you. UF is thrilled to offer a commemorative first-generation graduation cord for you to wear across the stage when you receive your UF diploma.

The cords are blue and white and they signify “first-generation college graduate.” Cords may be purchased for $14.00 + tax at the UF Bookstore when you pick up your graduation regalia beginning Monday, December 12. Again, congrats on this monumental occasion. UF is proud of you!
