February 2016 First-Gen Newsletter

Posted: February 16, 2016

Dear Scripps Community,

We hope you enjoyed a wonderful winter break and have adjusted well into the full swing of the spring semester.  We are particularly eager to distribute the February 2016 Newsletter of the First-Generation @ Scripps program. This issue features highlights of our 2nd annual First-Gen student retreat that took place on February 5-6, 2016.

The theme of this year’s retreat was Identity, Narrative, Inclusivity.  Throughout the retreat, students explored understanding their own identities in order to build solidarity within a diverse community.  The insights gleaned from the various workshop sessions are reflected in the zines pages that students produced.
