RADNOR, Pa. (June 29, 2016)—From June 29-July 3, Cabrini is hosting nearly 100 U.S. and international students as part of the National Hispanic Institute (NHI) 2016 Collegiate World Series.
This is the third consecutive year that Cabrini will host NHI, an organization that provides Latino youth with opportunities to envision themselves as future leaders, for the Collegiate World Series event that prepares rising high school seniors for higher education.
During the conference, high-achieving Latino students from across the U.S., Mexico, and the Dominican Republic gain insight into the college admissions process, financial aid, and strategic planning for personal and professional success.
“Cabrini’s partnership with NHI is based on a common mission to empower our students and develop the leaders of tomorrow,” said Cabrini President Donald B. Taylor, PhD. “We look forward to working with the NHI students, staff, and volunteers during their five days on campus.”
The Collegiate World Series is the third and final event for high school students in the NHI leadership series. NHI has more than 90,000 alumni, 98.1 percent of whom received undergraduate degrees.
