On August 27th EducationUSA hosted a reception at Stamford American International School to mark the one-year anniversary of the program being re-launched in Singapore. It has been a year full of events and outreach activities all across the country. From the first college fair in February that brought nearly a dozen universities down to Stamford to meet with students, to a Student Visa Day held at the U.S. Embassy where over 200 students completed their visa interviews and attended a pre-departure briefing, to presenting at local education fairs and schools on studying in the U.S., EducationUSA has been able to connect with over 6,700 students and parents to tell them more about the opportunities that exist at American universities and how to access those opportunities.
However, none of this work was done alone, and EducationUSA has had wonderful partners from the very beginning. This reception was a great chance not only to reflect on what has been accomplished this year but also thank all of EducationUSA’s partners from the junior colleges, polytechnics, universities, and especially the U.S. Embassy and Stamford American International School.
EducationUSA is looking forward to many more activities and events in the year to come, including the launch of our U.S. College Admissions Training Program announced by U.S. Ambassador, Mr. Kirk Wagar to help local school counselors to get equipped with skills and knowledge to help their students navigate through the U.S. application and admissions process.
