  • CH Alum featured in Indian Country Today News Article

    This article is a beautiful story of the strength and determination of a first-year college student adjusting to college life, struggling, reaching out for support and finding her way. Transitioning to college is hard for everyone and we admire and respect Pachynne Suzanne Ignacio from the Tohono O'odham Nation for sharing her story. College Horizons gets a shout-out in this story and we are grateful to have played a role in Pachynne's path to higher ed. Go Pachynne!  #CollegePrideNativePride

  • 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!
