PHILADELPHIA (March 13, 2015)—Community College of Philadelphia will host a bilingual college night from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18 at the Aspira Education Center, located at 6301 North Second St.

On-site registration will take place from 6 to 6:30 p.m. and refreshments will be served. Sessions will be held simultaneously in Spanish and English to meet the needs of our highly diverse city. The event is designed to expose the city’s growing Latino community to the broad educational opportunities available at the College and offer useful resources on scholarships, financial aid, transitioning from high school and more.

Latinos are 13 percent of Philadelphia’s 1.5 million residents. In 2013, 22 percent of all enrolled public two-year college students were Hispanics, up from 14 percent in 2000.

Dr. Donald Guy Generals, the College’s president, says strategic partnerships with business and community organizations are critical to student success.

“Philadelphia is a big city with a lot of small communities and we need to strengthen our presence by having a better relationship with each of those communities,” Dr. Generals said.
