UTC will celebrate all of its first-generation college students Nov. 6-10 during First Gen Week. The weeklong series of events will recognize trailblazing Mocs creating their own unique path here at UTC as the first in their families to pursue college degrees.
First Class will focus on college success tips—for both in and outside the classroom—and introduce students to basics like a course syllabus and, more importantly, how to read it and why it’s important.
“Taste of Black Chattanooga” brought food vendors to the University for a celebration of African American foods.
In the last three years, UTC awarded more than 1,300 bachelor’s degrees to first-gen college students.
