OSU Student Doris Gonzalez-Gomez featured in Education Week

July 26th, 2010

Came across a great article this morning in Education Week this morning that features current OSU student, Doris Gonzalez-Gomez. The article centers on the fact that Latinos are less likely than members of any other major ethnic group in the United States to attend college.

“I always knew a lot of people expect us [Latinos] to go to a community college,” Ms. Gonzalez said in an interview recently. “I wanted a full experience of going to a four-year college.”

Check this video which features Doris talking about her experiences in trying to get into college prep coursework:

Doris came to OSU through help from the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at Oregon State University. She is currently serving as an intern in the office of U.S. Congresswoman Judy Chu of California.

Keep up the good work, Doris! You make OSU proud!

    This is a great post and really emphasises the stereotypical view of not just Latinos in America but any race and ethnicity throught the globe. The part about her almost not being accepted on the course before she was even assessed and still fighting for a place is extremely encouraging and motivating. Many people can learn from her example. Great post!
