About California Sol Great Debate
Through the years, NHI has cultivated relations with a significant number of universities, mostly private, as reference possibilities when selecting their preferences. As members of NHI’s College Register, these institutions are located throughout the U.S. and usually attend NHI college fairs and admission workshops that give them one-on-one communication with NHI students.
On different occasions some of these institutions go a step further. They realize the importance of placing young minds in environments that excite the possibilities of college and make higher education real in their lives.
This year, a long supporter of NHI, University of San Diego will host the California Sol GD. At the Great Debate students will go through a journey to improve their language skills and word management while working together to bring home the silver cup.
We look forward to seeing you at the California Sol Great Debate!
