Thank You to Microsoft for today’s launching of our Coding & Gaming Program for all of our Puente Middle School sites in Hayward and Anaheim. This effort has been in the planning process for several months and we are excited that it has started and will continue through November 19th.

We are excited for this learning opportunity for our young students and for our new partnership with Microsoft. A special thank you to Ashley Tanos at Microsoft for working with us on this project!


It is with great pleasure and pride that we present the recipients of the Puente Project Statewide Academic and Leadership Award. Out of 164 Puente high school seniors who applied statewide, 27 Puentistas are being recognized with this distinction. Congratulations to these scholars, and thank you to the counselors and teachers who encouraged so many to apply. ¡Sí se puede!



We are so proud to share that Fresno State President, former Puentista and longtime Puente advocate, Dr. Joseph I Castro, has been selected as the new CSU Chancellor. He is the first CSU President appointed to lead the 23-campus system. We are so thrilled for him in his new role beginning January 2021.


“The California State University provides unprecedented and transformational opportunities for students from all backgrounds to earn a high-quality college degree and to better their families, their communities and the industries in which they become leaders. There is no other institution that makes this great of an impact on the entire state – the CSU is key to a growing and thriving California. I am truly grateful for and excited about this unique and wonderful opportunity.” - Dr. Castro.


Congratulations, Dr. Castro! Thank you for being an advocate for student needs and a dedicated leader in higher education. We applaud you!
