Well Said: Commencement and Carolina Firsts

Alexis Miller (Jon Gardiner/UNC-Chapel Hill)

On May 14, Alexis Miller, a political science major in the College of Arts & Sciences, will be one of the more than 600 first-generation college students to graduate from Carolina at the Spring Commencement.

It wasn’t the easiest path to graduation but with the support of Carolina Firsts, Miller will become the first person in her family to receive a college degree.

In this week’s episode, we talk about the upcoming Spring Commencement and the Carolina Firsts program with Miller, the president of the Carolina Firsts student organization.

Join UNC every other Wednesday for “Well Said,” the University’s podcast, featuring conversations with Carolina’s newsmakers and experts. Each episode, students, faculty, staff and alumni will discuss what’s going on in classrooms, labs and around campus, and how it pertains to the local, national and international headlines.
