The NAU Tri-Alpha chapter promotes academic excellence and provides opportunities for growth, leadership development, and community service for first-generation college students.
We strive to make activities, membership, t-shirts, and graduation cords as affordable as possible for First Generation Lumberjacks.
Fundraising Goal - $3,000 for 1st Gen Graduation Cords
The First-Generation Convocation began in 2020 and was cancelled in Spring 2022. The first-generation college community has asked the Tri-Alpha Honor Society to bring back first-generation graduation cords for any first-gen graduate.
The upfront cost to get us started again is $3,000 for 1,000 graduation cords with a charm. Since it's late in the spring season, the vendor we utilize typically needs four weeks to create and deliver the cords so we cannot guarantee the new 1st Gen cords will be available yet to Spring 2023 graduates.
We will have to sell the first-generation cords at $5 (additional shipping cost for students outside of Flagstaff as well) since the university has not allocated funding for the cords and we need to make this initiative financially sustainable.
