Armstrong Latino: HOLA

About HOLA Program

Aligning with Armstrong’s Strategic Plan, the Hispanic Outreach & Leadership at Armstrong (HOLA) program is a student-focused Hispanic/Latino initiative that provides student support services and cultural awareness programs, which strengthen the collegiate experience of a diverse body of campus constituents and community partners.

The HOLA Program is guided by the following organizational principles:

Program Vision

Assist Armstrong to become a Hispanic-serving institution of choice in Georgia, by leading all University System of Georgia schools in modeling best practices and achieving successful rates of Hispanic/Latino student enrollment, retention and graduation.

 

"Yo Soy Armstrong"

“Yo Soy Armstrong” is a spotlight initiative that will showcase the success of our fellow students. In addition, we want them to share with us what makes them “Armstrong?" How has Armstrong impacted them? The student highlighted will be nominated by their peers. Each student showcased is nominated based on their excellence and contribution to Armstrong and the student body. Make sure to keep an eye out for our student spotlights each month! #YoSoyArmstrong #ArmstrongLatino
