EVENT: University of Rochester and Latinas Unidas Present Annual Soy Unica Rally

February 6, 2008

Fifth Annual Event to be Held March 1 on the River Campus

The University of Rochester has teamed up with Latinas Unidas to become the prime sponsor of the organization's annual ¡Soy Unica! ¡Soy Latina! public education and empowerment rally next month and for years to come.

The event, which historically has drawn upward of 300 Latina girls ages 7 to 17 from the Greater Rochester area, will take place Saturday, March 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Hubbell Auditorium in Hutchison Hall on the University's River Campus.

Girls and their parents will have the opportunity to participate in a host of workshops and information sessions about college admissions, managing finances, maintaining cultural traditions, and healthy living. Breakfast and lunch will be served, door prizes will be available, and girls will be eligible to win a Quinceañera gown. The event is free and open to the public.
