Caldwell University staff members and a student are featured guests on the WABC-TV Tiempo program with Joe Torres that airs on Sunday Feb. 20 at 11:30 a.m.
Joann Gonzalez-Generals, Executive Director of Student Success, Joed Lopez, Educational Opportunity Fund Counselor, and Vanessa Treus, a senior at Caldwell University sat down with Torres to discuss how to prepare young Hispanics for college and how to find channels of inspiration for them. They pointed out the obstacles that some Hispanic high school students face in applying for college including coming from families that value education, but do not know how to navigate the process, the language barrier and the economic challenges. They talked about the importance of role models/mentors including coaches and teachers and the ways that Caldwell University helps students and their parents get acclimated to the transition from high school to college.
Tiempo is a weekly round-table discussion show focusing on topics that affect Hispanic citizens.

From the work of these four women, there eventually grew an even dozen congregations of Dominican sisters in the United States, one of which is ours.
