First-Gen Night at the Museum

First-Gen students at the Smart

Drop by the Smart Museum and meet other first-generation college students and first-generation immigrants at the University of Chicago. 

This second annual event is designed by the Smart's own first-gen docents for first-gen college students and their friends. It features tours of the special exhibitions Solidary & Solitary and Embodying the Self followed by a reception with food and beverage, artmaking activities, and conversation. 

All are welcome at this free and open event, planned in collaboration with the University of Chicago's Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and Student Support Services
