The Maverick Outpost

The Maverick Outpost will serve our Hispanic, financially needy, and first-generation college students and community in the Conroe area. It will serve as a hub between LSC-M and Conroe Center with easy, close to home access to student support services such as advising, tutoring, success coaching, computers, and internet use as well as a place to study.

Bilingual college preparedness and academic informational workshops and support resources will also be offered to help increase an interest in higher education and to sustain persistence, graduation, and transfer to a 4-year Institution of Higher Education.

To support this, we will: 
•    Expand outreach activities to encourage interest in higher education in underserved areas, 
•    Implement “College Coaching” to assist first-generation college students,
•    Expand focused and enhanced advising and tutoring resources, 
•    Create a “Maverick Outpost” near public transportation in the target area, and 
•    Educate students about financial literacy through knowledge of markets and economics,
     and higher education financing and repayment.
