This fall, Dean Latimer welcomed local high school students to Lehman’s campus for a college visit. The students attend Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health & Science Charter School, which is located right here is the Bronx.
Dr. William (Bill) Latimer addressed the students, discussing the high school to college transition, and how to transition successfully. The Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health & Science Charter School has internal resources, geared towards helping their seniors get into and successfully begin college. Check out some of those resources here.
Dean Latimer was able to provide a different perspective. Specifically, Dean Latimer spoke about the importance of integrating a liberal arts education with training for the health professions, which is something the Lehman College School of Health Sciences, Human Services and Nursing (HS2N) strives to do. Obviously, there is a connection between the Charter School and HS2N – many of the high schoolers count health and science as their areas of interest, hence attending this particular high school. Lehman College might be a good fit for these students, between the academic programs offered and the proximity to home. Regardless, hopefully the visit was inspiring and fun for these high schoolers, as they consider their next steps post-graduation.
We look forward to welcoming more high schoolers to campus, as they begin their college search. Maybe we will see some Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health & Science Charter School grad’s in HS2N in the coming years!
