Scene at UHD - First Gen Pride, Video Game Day and the Teaching & Learning Symposium

UHD was on the scene last week for First-Generation College Student Day, the Teaching and Learning Symposium and Video Game Day. 

Students, staff and faculty showed off their first-gen pride all week for National First Generation College Student Day. UHD is proud to support all of our first-gen Gators. 

The UHD Teaching and Learning Symposium was held on Nov 8. Dr. Jose Antonio Bowen was the keynote speaker and spoke about technology and the college classroom. The all-day event also included presentations from UHD faculty and staff, as well as other guests from area colleges and universities.

UHD Fandom held Video Game Day on Nov 6. Gators stopped by in between and after classes to play or enter in one of the two tournaments.
