A showdown between two powerhouse women’s basketball teams will set the stage for a celebration of the experiences of and the opportunities for first-generation students in higher education. The Ohio State University will honor these students during the game between the Buckeyes and the University of Tennessee tomorrow night at the Schottenstein Center.
Maleia Mirasol, president of Buckeyes First, a student organization connecting and supporting first-generation students, said she’s excited for the game and the celebration that will go along with it.
“I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for us to get our name out there, and let people know what we do and what we hope to achieve in our community,” she said. “I love that we’ve received this opportunity because it really does go with our theme for this year, which is, ‘Amplify your voice.’”
