We love it when local media sees the work you're doing and shares it with the community. And we love to then share it with you. Check out this great news segment about Southern Oregon University's Academia Latina.

Oregon's CACG and GEAR UP staff are collaborating on a series of short videos we're calling "College Talk." The idea behind the series was sparked by a previous blog post about college jargon and how difficult it can be -especially for first generation college students- to learn the "language" of college. We hope these videos will help.
You can watch the fourth video about extracurricular and social activities here or on the CACG YouTube page.
Please feel free to share the videos in this series with students, colleagues, or others you think might benefit. (And then let us know how you've helped get the word out!)
We'd really like to hear what you think - and, even more, we'd love to hear what your students think. Please share comments below or send an email to Adrienne and/or Dana with your thoughts.
