Lehigh University, USA, recognised among the nation’s premier research universities, is hosting its university’s first event in India — Building Futures Workshop 2024.

This will be conducted over two days, June 13 and 14, at Taj Lands End, Mumbai.

The two-day workshop is for select college counsellors and rising high school seniors. The event will provide insight into college admissions in the United States through interactive sessions.

Each college counsellor attending Building Futures will be inviting a high-achieving, rising high school senior to attend the student track of the workshop, stated a press release from the university.
