What is the Texas CWS

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,  University of St.Thomas  will host the Texas CWS.  At the Collegiate World Series, students will come together to be a part of an experience that will benefit their long-term decisions. Such as, how to  improve their presentation skills, as well as delving into complex challenges and applying their knowledge of inquiry based learning. 

High School students from urban areas will enjoy the natural setting of the Texas CWS and its surrounding environment.

We look forward to seeing you in Houston!
