Join First Gen

Be a part of the only alumni network in the UC system that is exclusively for first-generation UCLA students and alumni!

Navigating college and the professional world as a first-gen is undoubtedly distinct from the non-first-generation journey, which is why the UCLA First Gen Alumni Network provides resources that are tailored specifically to the unique first-generation college experience. As a member, you have access to First Gen events, which include professional panels, volunteer events, social gatherings and student recruitment efforts. Membership is completely free for all first-generation UCLA students and alumni. There are many ways to get involved and feel free to bring your friends!
