The time the counselors spent on campus allowed us to take them on a deeper dive into our university facilities, academic offerings, & student support services beyond what they see in brochures & online. The visit also helped the international teams gain visibility & recognition from internal stakeholders. This will likely facilitate requests for additional budget lines in future cycles. Thank you, KIC!
KIC puts together an extremely well-organized Counselor Tour event. Our office traditionally hosts a counselor fly-in event, which requires a lot of work & coordination, but KIC makes it easier for us to put together a great program as they focus on the logistics of getting the counselors here. The group consisted of counselors from top schools in various regions of India & I believe all had an excellent opportunity to really get to know SLU & will be able to share this with their students.
What a delightful group of counselors from all across India & Singapore. The group came prepared with questions for our staff & students. One of our tour guides met with me after to tell me how much she enjoyed the counselors. As a result of the wonderful experience, she has set up an appointment with our off-campus study adviser to inquire about study abroad in India this fall. That was a wonderful way to end the day.
UnivAssist's Counselor Tour allowed us to showcase our faculty & campus in a way that isn't possible through our visits to international schools. We also could personally meet, in a meaningful way, with various counselors from around the world. This will have a big impact on our international recruitment efforts. While the students may change yearly, relationships with the schools are key to successful global engagement. We are excited to incorporate what we've learned into our recruitment strategies.
We were impressed by the professionalism of all the counselors and staff who visited! Counselors learned a great deal from being on our campus, & we, too, discovered a great deal from their input & perspectives. The relationships built were wonderful. Our Chancellor is planning a trip to India, & we're excited for additional contacts & resources. The focus on the student was very impressive, ensuring students & families receive the best information to make informed decisions on where to pursue their degree. A magical day!
It was our pleasure to host such a wonderful group of counselors on our campus. The Counselor Tour brought the world to Western Kentucky University & hopefully planted relationships that will continue to grow in the future.
