Blazing the Trail: Being the First | April 2018

Our alumni team held the inaugural 1stGenYale conference on campus. This was the first time that we came together as a new alumni shared interest group, celebrating who we are, being first! Alumni from diverse cultural, ethnic, and racial backgrounds, and from all schools and years, connected with each other, shared our stories, and developed meaningful friendships to continue well after the conference was over.
