Curious about CWSx? Come to today’s panel to learn more
If you’re curious about the National Hispanic Institute’s CWSx experience, you’ll have the chance to learn about it first hand from people who experienced it this past summer.
The session today (Tuesday, Nov. 24) at 3 pm CT gives students preparing for a 2021 CWSx experience to learn what it’s like from people who were part of the inaugural online version of the program this past summer.
Alma Raymer, NHI’s Associate Director for Enrollment and Institutional Relations, will be joined by five NHI seniors who attended the 2020 CWSx program to discuss their experiences of the college application and admissions processes in this digital environment.
In addition to discussing their experiences with the college admissions and application process this fall, our panelists will also highlight how the CWSx program helped them be prepared for admissions in this digital age.
The panelists will also touch on some hot topics for digital admissions, including how to understand a college’s environment without being able to visit in person, how to best leverage CWSx training, when it makes the most sense to submit test scores in the current environment if you’re taking them, and arts supplements for the CommonApp.
“NHI has helped me pinpoint my interests and advertise my best self to the colleges I’m applying to,” said Isabella Szabo, a senior at Orange County School of the Arts in Santa Ana, California, who attended last year’s CWSx 2. “I received incredible interview preparation and amazing essay feedback.”
“Every NHIer brings high-level talent, leadership, and innovation to the organization. All those qualities will be on display at this summer’s 2021 CWSx programs,” said NHI Senior Vice President Chris Nieto. “Participants will gain important insight into the college admissions process, especially with how this pandemic has changed it. CWSx will also help students hone their leadership skills, making lifelong friends along the way.”
Registration for this event is open to all NHI Student Club members, School and Community Partners, 2020 CWSx participants, and students considering the 2021 CWSx program. To register, log in to your NHI account or email for additional details.
