"For me, Juntos means accomplishing a goal by dreaming big and having support in various ways. It means being united as a family… and supporting each other. For my journey, this program has been a great experience. It has opened a lot of doors academically, and taught me to never give up." - Lisbet Leon, Former Juntos Club President and Current OSU Student



Open Campus Programs

College Access

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


Juntos (meaning “together” in Spanish) is designed to empower high school students and their parents to gain the knowledge, skills, and resources needed for academic success while working together to make college a family goal. Uniting with community partners, Juntos provides culturally relevant programming for 6-12th grade students and their parents.

Transfer Student Support

Transferring from a community college to a university can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Open Campus coordinators are here to 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.
