We had a blast at Oregon State!
TRIO Student Support Services hosted a #1-themed open house with cupcakes, a First Gen trivia quiz with raffle, photo staging, and crafts. For the crafts, we created a tree to celebrate personal growth—guests were invited to trace and cut out their handprint and then write a “first” they have accomplished. We also provided “#1” door sign templates for guests to decorate and take back to their work or living spaces. It was tons of fun and felt great to have everyone express appreciation for first-gen college students.
