This exhibit highlights the first-generation student journey.

A new exhibit in the Madison College Truax Campus Gallery, Celebration of 1st Gen College Students, features first-person stories of students who are the first in their family to attend college. The show runs until Oct. 24 with a reception Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 1-3 p.m.

This exhibit highlights the college's support services. There are two interactive activities at the exhibit: add a leaf to the first-generation family tree and visit the selfie-station to showcase first-generation roots or show support for the students.
