If you took to social media sites this past Friday and into the weekend, you saw proud National Hispanic Institute students using the #NHIDecisionDay hashtag to show where they’re going to school.

Some took direct inspiration from universities they first encountered through NHI. Gabi de Simone (from Suffield Academy in Suffield, Conn.), whose story we highlighted in the run-up to the annual celebration, posted to Instagram on the Villanova University steps she first encountered as a Northeast Great Debate student. Isabella Sada (from Hays High School in Buda, Texas) took to Twitter with a photo declaring her part of “Roo Nation” — attending the very Austin College that is integral to many Texas-based NHI students as home of the Texas Great Debate.

#nhidecisionday @nhi_news Thank you NHI for the endless opportunities that you have given me. I will be forever thankful.

We were inspired by a number of the other Instagram posts (some of which we shared on our own Instagram in coordination with students) that heralded destinations as varied as Arizona State University, the University of Southern California, Wheaton College, and the University of Texas at Austin:

We were also happy to see NHI @ San Antonio participate by featuring some of its students:

There’s still a chance to participate if you didn’t get to and you’re part of NHI’s Class of 2019 — it’s just a matter of going to your favorite social media platform, looking at the #NHIDecisionDay to see what’s been done up until now, and add your own. (We had participants declare before the official date as well as after; we want to see you represent with the hashtag even though the official day has passed!)
