¡ANDALE!@Oakton supports the College's Latino students and the campus-wide community. Through events, workshops, networking, and peer mentoring, ¡ANDALE! — the Association to Nurture and Develop the Advancement of Latinos in Education — fosters early collegiate connections, promotes academic preparedness, and creates clear academic pathways that encourage student success.

Part of Oakton's access, equity, and diversity initiative, ¡ANDALE!@Oakton offers:

  • Workshops that provide the tools for academic success — from reading textbooks to effective study habits;
  • Seminars in Spanish for parents and other caregivers each semester;
  • Student advocates trained to serve as peer mentors;
  • A chance to make new friends and get involved in other campus activities;
  • Networking opportunities;
  • A spring Latino Summit.

There's no cost to participate and all are welcome!
