Ready or not, here it comes! Summer is almost over, but to us, the excitement is just about to start as we dive into the fall semester. We know that for many of you this doesn’t mean you can slow down on your recruitment efforts, even if you’re balancing welcoming new students. To help you out during this busy time we have a few ways to keep the recruitment traction rolling. Plus, our Travel Video Contest is just around the corner; not only is it a great project for your students to take on for the chance to win one of many cash prizes, but it is also a great way for them to share just how great your school is!

International students can join our free events to learn about a variety of topics around studying outside their home country like understanding the US dollar and banking system, tips on making friends around campus, working in the US, and choosing a major. Our video series was created as a resource for students. With the new semester just around the corner, please feel free to share any videos they may find helpful this school year.

Interestingly Enough

Orientation and welcome events for students this fall will likely look different than in years past. Each step along the way through the COVID-19 maze we’re learning to navigate - and that includes when it comes to campus events. Since we’re still all in this together - we would love to hear what you’re doing (or have done) on your campus during orientation that might differ from years past. We encourage you to share with others on our LinkedIn page to let the community suggestions and conversion flow.
