Celebrate with us on November 7, 2019!
Join us in celebration of first-generation college students across the nation! We're hosting a day of activities in Henderson Hall. Full list of activities below.
Each November 8 marks the National First-Generation College Celebration which LAUNCH celebrates as First Gen Day! This year, LAUNCH is celebrating one day ahead on November 7.
First Gen Day celebrates current students and graduates who are the first in their family to attend college and who enrolled at (or graduated from) Texas A&M University. First-Generation Students matter to us and we are proud to have them in LAUNCH!
