Gabriella Oteri of Somerdale (08083) is one of 19 students recently inducted into Tri-Alpha, an honor society for first-generation college students, at Muhlenberg College.
"Being a first-generation college student means that we have the privilege of multidisciplinary learning at an undergraduate institution, which generations before us did not have," said Sofia Herrera '22, a speaker at the 2022 Tri-Alpha Honor Society Induction Ceremony. "And we can open doors for others to have the same opportunity."
Herrera, a neuroscience and public health major who is headed to Northwestern University this summer to earn a master's of public health, helped welcome the 18 newest members of Muhlenberg's first-generation college student honor society on April 22 in the Seeger Union Event Space.
To be eligible for the Tri-Alpha Honor Society, students must have completed at least three full-time terms, earned an overall GPA of 3.2 and come from a family where neither parent nor any legal guardians earned a bachelor's degree.
Alpha Alpha Alpha was founded in 2018 at Moravian College, an initiative of Associate Provost Carol Traupman-Carr. Muhlenberg is the Delta, or fourth, chapter of Tri-Alpha in the country.
