Black and Latino Excellence (BLX) Transition program

This five-day summer program helps ease the transition into college for new students. Move in early before the start of fall semester. Meet new friends, learn about academic and social support, gain leadership skills and more. Afterward, you're encouraged to join the BLX Living Learning Community in Parks Tower Residence Hall to continue living and learning together.

How can I get involved?

This daylong event for hundreds of area Latino youth focuses on hope and creating a promising future. Youth listen to a keynote speaker, participate in hands-on activities, and learn about career paths and college planning.



Meet Jannet Frias

“OMSS and other offices have given me the opportunity to voice the needs and concerns for the Latinx community at UToledo. I have always been welcome with open arms. Not only have they given me advice to be a successful student leader, but I have made lifetime connections with people that I consider family. I have connected with other Latinx students, and I have found my home away from home.”
