On Monday March 6th in the Tiger Square at ANS we were able to meet 18 different representatives of Catholic colleges around the United States as part of the National Catholic College Admission Association (CCAA).
The CCAA is a non profit organization of Catholic colleges and universities that are committed to promoting the values of Catholic higher education and to serving students in the transition to college.
This year from March 5 to March 15, Nicaragua as well as Colombia, Honduras, Costa Rica, Ecuador and El Salvador were visited by this non profit organization for the recruitment of students.
The 18 colleges and universities were:
Barry University (Miami, Florida)
Benedictine College (Atchison, Kansas)
Cabrini University (Radnor, Pennsylvania)
DePaul University (Chicago, Illinois)
Emmanuel College (Boston, Massachusetts)
Loyola University New Orleans (New Orleans, Louisiana)
Marymount University (Arlington, Virginia)
Our Lady of the Lake University (San Antonio, Texas)
Providence College (Providence, Rhode Island)
Saint Anselm College (Manchester, New Hampshire)
Saint Joseph’s University (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
Saint Mary’s College (Notre Dame, Indiana)
St. Mary’s University (San Antonio, Texas)
Salve Regina University (Newport, Rhode Island)
Siena College (Albany, New York)
Stonehill College (Easton, Massachusetts)
University of St. Joseph (West Hartford, Connecticut)
University of St. Thomas (St. Paul, Minnesota)
It was an amazing visit in which students could have a better idea of what life was going to be like in the college or university they were interested. Students could also ask questions like the requirements for applying and for scholarships as well as the most popular majors.
It was a very unique experience that opened frontiers for students and the representatives were really inclusive and interactive helping students learn about their college or university.
