The Arkansas United Greek Council hosted their second college initiative event, “Si Se Puede.” Si Se Puede, when translated is “yes we can,” a phrase fitting to an event like this. The purpose of this event is to provide a space where transfer, first- generation students and their families see that a higher education is within their reach and to show the resources we have on our campus even through the challenge of a language barrier. 

 Si Se Puede is only in its second year but has already seen a significant growth in attendance. During the program, families get to see and hear a presentation about registering for classes, financial aid and housing.  

Current students sat on a panel to answer pre-determined questions such as what tools make you the most successful? The importance of using academic advisers. And then opened the ending to any questions that the families had about what it is like on campus day to day.
