Armstrong Latino: Academic Advising

Hispanic Outreach and Retention at Armstrong

The HORA Office assists in Hispanic/Latino student outreach, retention, and academic advising at Armstrong, providing the success tools necessary for students and their families as they transition into postsecondary studies at Armstrong.  Being in a new environment can be challenging, and often students don’t know where to turn when they have questions or need help.  That is why we are here!  We support current and prospective students and their families by introducing them to available university resources, services, and academic advising.   The HORA Office also serves as a liaison between OMA and Academic Advising to ensure students strive toward academic excellence and attain leadership skills during their undergraduate journey.

HORA offers student enrichment and development opportunities through one-on-one academic advisement sessions for first and second year students. The primary goal of these sessions is to help first and second year students develop the habits and skills necessary for academic success.  Session topics often include:

If you are a first or second year Hispanic/Latino student, contact your HORA Advisor to make an appointment for academic advisement via phone: 912.344.3370 or send an e-mail to
