First-generation graduates read letters from their parents

UC Riverside has a long history of supporting first-generation students. We connected with 11 of our first-generation graduates to see what being the first in their family to graduate meant to them. Then we opened up the question to their families. See what happens when they read their families’ responses for the first time (grab the tissues!).
