Visit Us at Booth #1739

Our booth this year is #1739, and we hope to see you there! For those of you on one of our Featured School Packages, this year we have revamped them to give you additional value. Stop by to make sure you have the best package to meet your needs and to discuss other ways we can help you reach international students, like with our new banner ads, trigger emails and responsive site.

We love to schedule time with our partners, so if you have not already gotten on our calendar, now’s the time to do it. You can contact Rachel or Don to schedule your appointment.


Connor's NAFSA Tips of the Month

  1. Download the NAFSA 2017 Mobile Conference App - Meet your new best friend, the NAFSA app! This app will keep you up to date on all things NAFSA related before and during the conference.

    • You’ll be able to build your event, meeting and session schedule.
    • Message and connect with fellow attendees.
    • Create and share your customized profile.

  2. Download the app on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

  3. Always Wear Your Badge! - Be sure to always wear your badge, sleep with it if you have to! Wearing your badge will increase your networking reach and spark conversations with everyone around you. Not to mention, without it, they won’t let you in. It could also be your ticket into that reception you forgot to RSVP to.

  4. Charge On - Chances are you will be using your phone quite heavily and as we all know, smart phone batteries go from 100% to 1% in the blink of an eye. An excellent option is to bring a portable charger with you for charging on the go and to relieve your stress of finding an open wall socket!

  5. Get Down to Business - Did you pack enough business cards? Really? Are you sure? Check again! Exchanging business cards is a great conversation starter and a great way to easily exchange contact details. After getting someone’s card make a note on the back with what you talked about to keep that personal touch when following up with them.

  6. Say Hello! - Come on now, don’t be shy. NAFSA is all about learning and networking so strike up a conversation! You never know where a chance encounter can take you, that person you talk to in the elevator for a few minutes could have an impact that lasts a lifetime!

Resource of the Month

Will you be attending NAFSA? Do your lead inquiries go to your email? If you answered yes to both of these questions then you should have a communication plan in place for while you’re at the conference. If possible, have your lead emails go to a colleague to manage while you’re away. If this isn’t an option then you should set up a detailed auto-response.

In your email you should include the who, when and how:
  • Who to contact in your absence
  • When you will be returning
  • How long you will be gone (dates,etc..)

“InternationalStudent.com has allowed us to extend our reach internationally at a minimal cost, and the level of support has been wonderful. The team at Envisage quickly updates changes in cost or program offerings, and the monthly analytics report is helpful as a tool for developing our overall recruitment strategy. For a fraction of the cost of most lead-generating companies, we get 2-3 dozen hits a month, and several of those leads have resulted in students coming to Northwest. I know that InternationalStudent.com has contributed to our overall growth in diversity."
-Dr. Philip Hull from Northwest Missouri State University

“We have been working with InternationalStudent.com for more than 4 years and I can honestly say that our presence on their website as a featured institution has increased our recognition and branding tenfold! In addition, we have yielded solid leads on a regular basis and will continue to take advantage of everything InternationalStudent.com has to offer in terms of marketing.“
-Karin Lee from Mississippi State University
