  • 77 public high school students from The Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens, arrived at 9:30 AM to attend a panel discussion featuring college representatives from Columbia University, Fordham University, SUNY College at Old Westbury, Lehmann College (CUNY), and Hostos Community College. Panelists discussed the various advantages of attending the different types of institutions, financial aid opportunities, how to meet college requirements, campus life and activity, collegiate sports, and answered other questions raised by students.
  • Following the panel, students were led on tours of Yeshiva University’s Wilf Campus, including the 5 story Gottesman Library, state of the art laboratories, the gym and athletic center, lecture halls, and dorms.
