In June, the University of Cincinnati’s Admissions Office hosted a reception following the annual HECA (Higher Education Association) conference for guidance counselors from across the nation. The HECA event was co-hosted by UC and Xavier, providing a great opportunity to interact with an audience of key influencers for future post-secondary students.

The theme of the HECA conference this year was experiential and learning outcomes. The conference provided an excellent opportunity to highlight many UC and CECH programs and events. Six students from schools within CECH had the opportunity to represent their programs and college while networking with over 200 secondary school guidance counselors.

CECH was also represented by Student Services Center staff, Brad Tate, Betsy Macke, and Josie Evans-Phillips.

Brad Tate quotes, “We are so appreciative of the students that took the time to prepare exhibits and share their stories, they did an impressive job representing their programs, Schools, and CECH.”

This was an inspiring event for all who attended, and provided a rich environment and opportunity to engage school counselors. CECH is proud of the students and staff who represented our programs in such a positive way.
