First-Generation Graduation Cords

Filed under Academic & Research, Opportunities on April 16, 2018.

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 $14.84 (after tax) at the UF Bookstore. Again, congrats on this monumental occasion. We are proud of you!
