Latino Logradores (Latino Achievers)
Latino Logradores (LatiLo) is a freshman initiative that provides mentorship, family atmosphere, and transition from high school to college and resources to help students thrive in a college environment. This is a freshman’s first connection to the familia Latina where they can build long-lasting relationships, explore their culture, build networks, feel empowered, develop holistically and be a service to the local community.
La Casita (Small Home):
La Casita is a place where members come together to build community, socialize, network and find a sense of belonging. Like topics that are covered at home with your family, we will celebrate successes, support hardships, share experiences, share culture, connect you to resources and have some food together. La Casita is your small home away from home.
Las Familias (Families)
Las Familias is the name for the mentorship structure. Mentorship is an important component of the program where members get the opportunity to be mentored by sophomore, junior or senior Aggie Latino/a/x students at Texas A&M University. This will be a year-long mentorship where mentor-mentees will meet several times a semester as a group and also have opportunity for one-on-one mentorship. The group under a mentor will be called a Familia.
La Conexión (The Connection):
La Conexión will be the cornerstone of information needed to be a successful student at Texas A&M University. There will be a sharing of essential resources, like opportunities in leadership, academic deadlines, career services, community connection, organization involvement and activities. These resources will be shared through a variety of means specifically through the Las Familias and La Casita. The first year of college can be a rough transition, we are trying to make it easier.
