LBCC presents at Juntos Family Day
OSU recently hosted "Juntos Family Day," an event that connects Spanish-speaking families across the state of Oregon with access to higher education options. The event included career workshops, social-group programs, financial aid support, and other opportunities -- and LBCC took a starring role! Our college staff discussed how LBCC builds upon the tradition of offering community-based, culturally-relevant preparation and educational pathways, and is a main gateway in the Mid-Willamette Valley for accessible, higher education in our state. Check out the video, below, that staff shared as part of their presentation on the advantages of an LBCC education -- and pass it on! For more information on LBCC resources for Spanish-speaking families, please visit our website.
