Besides LASER's two signature events, LRMD and SÕL-CON, every year LASER hosts various programming events.

Programming events are meant to create a safe space for local Spanish-speaking families to familiarize themselves with The Ohio State University and to learn about what the university is doing to break down barriers to higher education. These events include:

  • FAFSA Nights (paying for college, applying for federal student aid)
  • DACA Workshops (pathways to college, legal rights)
  • College Credit Plus Workshops (how to earn college credit in high school)
  • Pan Dulce Noches (desserts, admissions info, campus tours)
  • Dia de Los Muertos (facepainting, campus pilgrimage, “Coco” screening)
