Hobsons and HACU Partner to Publish Hispanic School District Guide
New college guide to help schools reach college-bound Hispanic students in southern California

CINCINNATI (March 11, 2008) – Hobsons, a leader in Hispanic college-bound student
publishing, today announced their partnership with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and
Universities (HACU) to produce a college magazine specifically for Hispanic students in
southern California. The CollegeView Magazine California High School District Guide, will be
released in fall 2008, and will include content specifically benefiting Hispanic high school
students in California.

Hobsons will distribute copies of the guide to every student in the Anaheim Union High, Chino,
Valley Unified, and Garden Grove Unified school districts. These school districts encompass
some of southern California’s growing Hispanic areas, all with more than 50 percent Hispanic

CollegeView Magazine California High School District Guide will provide students with
information about colleges that actively recruit Hispanic students throughout the country. The
magazine is written in both English and Spanish to ensure that students and their families have
access to the pertinent information included in the guide.

CollegeView Magazine will also provide valuable information about campus life and experiences
from students at campuses across California, as well as editorial content from Hobsons about
HACU, the college search process, financial aid, and scholarship information. This valuable
information helps students learn more about college in general, as well as pinpoint an institution
where they will succeed.

“With the school districts targeted by this new guide having very significant Hispanic
populations, our guides will help students and their parents find college information specific to
their needs simply and effectively,” said Craig Heldman, President, Hobsons U.S. “This new
guide will be a valuable tool for educators and students alike, giving them valuable information
for the unique needs of Hispanic students.”

“The Hispanic population continues to be the largest and fastest-growing minority group in the
United States, and with that growth, there is a continued need for resources to educate students
about college choices,” said HACU President & CEO Antonio Flores. “The addition of these
California school districts to the students across the country already receiving regional editions
of the College-Bound Hispanic Student Guide offers a way for institutions to reach talented
students in a region where the Hispanic population is growing the fastest.”
