Hinsdale Central Counselors Invited to Participate in International Study Events

Two of our counselors from Hinsdale Central have been invited to participate in events that will provide valuable information about some of the international study opportunities that exist for students who continue their education after high school. Cindy Kasten is scheduled to take part in the Ancora Imparo program that Monash University will be holding in Prato, Italy in mid-September. Through this program, attendees will have the chance to connect and discuss a variety of local and global topics, while also learning about the university’s study abroad campus and the courses it offers in subjects such as the arts, IT, business, law, science and education. Kasten’s invitation was based, in part, on her role as a founding member of a non-profit organization called International College Options, which “seeks to educate families and counselors on options for full-degree international studies for American high school students.” You can access additional information about Monash University by visiting

Michael Litton was invited to take part in the Counselor Weekend being hosted in October by NYU Abu Dhabi, which is considered to be among the most selective universities in the world. During this event, attendees will get to meet students, faculty and staff from the university, tour the school’s campus on Saadiyat Island and explore the city of Abu Dhabi. They will also learn more about the university’s core curriculum and areas of study, as well as the global education, research and career development opportunities that are available to its students.

It is a testament to the hard work and dedicated efforts that they and all of our counselors undertake on a daily basis to help our students advance on the path toward their ideal future.
