International Student Toolkit: Webinar Series
When international students come to the U.S., what tools do they need to simplify their lives? What services can help meet these needs? How can schools communicate this information to students? These questions are at the root of the International Student Tool Kit: Webinar Series.
Over two days next week, Study in the USA is facilitating conversations about the services students need and the companies that provide them. Participating partners: Argo, ELSA, CampusSIMS, and Unilodgers.

The Long & Short of the Student Journey
Nine times. It takes an average of nine contacts with students for them to respond. So, remember that just because you’re not hearing from students, it doesn’t mean they’re not aware of your school or program. Follow up on all inquiries promptly — this is a digitally savvy generation with short attention spans — and include relevant information at every channel where they can be found. Also, share news and updates students can use along with the general admissions info.
