The National Hispanic Institute will be staging its first NHI Digital College Fair of Summer 2021 — an innovation borne of last year’s pandemic — will take place this Tuesday, July 6. The online experience will allow university representatives from numerous institutions to congregate online, and will allow participating students to visit with a number of them in a single two-hour period.

“Both last year and in February of this year, NHI held college fairs where many students had meaningful conversations with NHI College Register members in this digital space,” said Nicole Nieto, NHI’s Executive Vice President, overseeing Tuesday’s event. “Many students applied their communications training from the GDx or their networking skills from the LDZ or CWSx to make strong, positive and lasting impressions with admission representatives.”

The NHI Digital College Fair event, taking place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. CT, involves the following institutions (with some last-minute additions possible):

  • Adelphi University
  • American University
  • Austin College
  • Case Western Reserve University
  • Central Connecticut State University
  • Concordia University Texas
  • Elizabethtown College
  • Elmhurst University
  • Glendon Campus of York University
  • Macalester College
  • McDaniel College
  • Neumann University
  • Northwestern University
  • Purdue University
  • Rhodes College
  • St. Edward’s University
  • St. John’s College
  • St. Mary’s College of Maryland
  • Southwestern University
  • Texas A&M University-San Antonio
  • Texas Tech University
  • Trinity University
  • University of Denver
  • University of North Texas
  • University of Pittsburgh
  • University of Redlands
  • University of Saint Francis
  • University of South Alabama
  • University of the South (Sewanee)
  • University of Texas at Arlington
  • Vanderbilt University

Nieto has advice for students who are able to attend — even if they only have thirty minutes to check in — to maximize their time and utilize one of NHI’s best resources for college-bound students.

  • Make sure you have good lighting
  • Try to be in a place that doesn’t have a lot of noise interference
  • Place yourself in a space where you can pay full attention to representatives
  • Wear your best color and present a scholarly appearance
  • Gather your thoughts and wear a smile
  • Get the names and email addresses of the people you meet in order to follow up
  • Be enthusiastic about going to college!

While there will be another college fair later this summer, the roster of schools may change for the second 2021 event, depending on representative availability.
