College Access

Open Campus is here to support students throughout their education journey. College Access programs include Future Pathways, College Talk Tuesdays, Open Campus Hangouts, and College Access Summer Melt. Programs offer resources, mentoring, and advising to guide students throughout their college journey from high school through college graduation.

Transfer Student Support

Transferring from a community college to a university can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Open Campus coordinators can help map out your transfer goals and connect you to transfer resources and information. Community College Transfer Support includes degree planning, campus tours, and a library of informational videos.

Community Development and Engagement

Coordinators convene partners on important issues to increase economic well-being and community vitality while advocating for communities who have historically been excluded and marginalized. Community projects include Grant County CyberMills, adult diploma or GED completion programs, and the Rural Communities Explorer, a team of data experts who also provide a repository of statewide data.

Career Prep and Exploration

Open Campus believes in the power of providing tools and resources that will help students and job seekers achieve their long-term goals. From career exploration events to industry-specific career snapshots, we strive to provide job skills, opportunities, and pathways to our community. Our coordinators can also help with internships, resumés and cover letter guidance, trade school access, and connections to resources.

K-8th Grade Programs

Open Campus works with kindergarten, elementary, and middle school students to promote college and career access. To prepare students for success in college and beyond, Open Campus offers a variety of programs and support, including Juntos Afuera, summer STEM Camps, Tech Trek STEM Camp for 8th grade girls, Juntos Chemistry Camp, and Juntos for Middle School.
