  • College Horizons featured on NPR national news show!



    Listen to our segment on All Things Considered from NPR News using the following link!


    Claudio Sanchez, a news correspondent from NPR, spent the better part of a week with us at our 2016 program at Lawrence University. This is what he saw. Tip: Be sure to listen to the audio from the show since it contains the voices of our students and more content than the written article! 

    College Horizons is a program of heart - take a listen to our students share their stories on their fluid identities, preparing for college, being teenagers and strengthening their families, communities and Nations through education. Thank you Claudio Sanchez and NPR for listening. We are thrilled for the coverage as we prepare to launch our CH Annual Fund Campaign in just a few short weeks - stay tuned!
  • Webinar Time!

    Last week we had a chance to hold an informational webinar for prospective students, parents and educators who are looking to apply to our programs next summer.  We're still relatively new to this way of broadcasting information about our programs, but we think it went well.  We had about 85 people register to attend the webinar - woohoo!  If you wanted to attend the webinar but didn't have a chance to, here is a recording that we've posted to youtube.  It contains everything that a regular presentation contains and then some!  Carmen Lopez, our Executive Director describes our programs, gives advice on students applying to our programs and answers many questions from participants.  If you are seeking information about next year's programs, this is definitely the video to watch!
