Bienvenidos al programa para estudiantes Hispanos y Latinos de la Universidad Estatal de Kennesaw!

KSU is dedicated to increasing the recruitment, retention, progression, and graduation rates for all Hispanic/Latino students with continuing a well proven established signature program to our students. The Hispanic/Latino Outreach & Leadership in Academics (HOLA) Program (formerly RRPG Program) provides dedicated cultural resources, academic support, mentorship, special assistance, and financial aid access uniquely tailored to the needs of this student population, while developing a sense of familia.

The purpose of the HOLA Program is to graduate program participants at rates equal to or higher than their non-Hispanic/Latino peers. We are excited to work with you to achieve your academic and personal goals by:

  • Fostering a welcoming climate for Hispanic/Latino students through campus and program events, and access to your own cultural resource center
  • Offering a one-stop-shop of academic support services uniquely tailored to the needs of our program participants
  • Maximizing your access to financial aid and scholarship resources, therefore lessening the need for you to obtain employment while enrolled in KSU
  • Increasing the quality of the academic and co-curricular experience through individual academic coaching and exclusive enrichment activities

In addition, we anticipate increasing the number of Hispanic/Latino students who enroll at KSU while increasing the retention, progression, and graduation rates for all Hispanic/Latino students.
