Hispanic/Latinx Student Organizations

 
OSU supports opportunities that enhance the Hispanic/Latinx tradition through campus organizations including the Hispanic Student Association (HSA), Latin American Student Association (LASA) and Multicultural Greek Council (MGC). These organizations promote friendship and unity within the Cowboy family.
OSU hosts several campus traditions to honor Hispanic/Latinx culture including the Mr. and Miss Hispanic/Latinx OSU Scholarship Pageant, Dia de los Muertos, Flor de Canto and Fiestas de las Americas. The pageant and the Hispanic Student Association celebrate all facets of Hispanic culture and have created an atmosphere that values diversity while promoting community.

OSU Opens Doors and Inspires Students 

First-generation college student Casandra Salinas grew up in a small ranch in the rural Mexican town of Atolinga. Her father died in 2010, and the California-born Salinas ended up in Oklahoma City with her aunt. Despite attending three different high schools and a slew of other challenges, Salinas maintained a 4.0 GPA. 
At OSU, Salina’s involvement in HSA pushed her to apply for the Alliance for Minority Participation program (OK-LSAMP). Through OK-LSAMP, she started her research project on cystic fibrosis. The program opens students’ eyes to possibilities and opportunities available at OSU and all Oklahoma Alliance institutions. The National Science Foundation recently awarded a $3.9 million grant to the program, ensuring that the Oklahoma alliance will be able to continue preparing underrepresented scholars to enter STEM fields and engage in research around the world.
