“After three times with KIC UnivAssist, I'm happy to see that [each time] they have continued to
raise the bar even higher. I love the level of professionalism and support, the quality of the schools we visit and students we see.”
- Aaron Cardozo, India Outreach Representative
"KIC UnivAssist is THE source of knowledge about the Indian student market and mentality. I was so impressed by
the access that was granted to our group to schools that are notoriously difficult to get into (or simply get to!) when solo traveling in India. The Emerging Tour
brought us in contact with students who were open-minded and eager to hear more about studying abroad, as opposed to students in main metropolitan areas who are
regularly bombarded with visitors from the U.S. I have traveled with KIC several times in the past, and will absolutely continue to do so in the future, due to their
enthusiasm, professionalism, sincerity, and passion for what they do. Highly recommended!"

UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA DULUTH
"Many international recruitment organizations make promises about their attention to detail, their quality
customer service and their knowledge of the market(s).... KIC UnivAssist delivers on these promises in ways that continually impress me. From my first exposure
to KIC UnivAssist at NAFSA to my second time participating in their tours, I have found every person connected to the organization to be committed to quality,
to service, and to success. Their tours are amazingly well orchestrated, the school visits are extremely productive, and the follow up opportunities are robust.
Their knowledge of the Indian market is deep and their commitment to serving students is at the core of everything they do. If you're interested in India, look
no further than KIC UnivAssist."
- Chris Haidos, Associate Director, International Admissions
SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY, CARBONDALE
"I was impressed by the professionalism of the UnivAssist staff. They were extremely organized.
School visits in three cities in 5 days was fast-paced and hectic, but very rewarding. Meeting with the administrators, counselors, and
the students provided us with the opportunity to reach out to a large pool of prospective students. Face-to-face interaction opened the
door in building partnerships with the Indian schools. Indian hospitality was overwhelming. I would highly recommend U.S. graduate schools
to go with the UnivAssist group to recruit students in India. It was a great experience overall."
- Dr. Ratna Sinha, Associate Director, Graduate School
JOHN CARROLL UNIVERSITY
“I would not do India in any other way/with any group other than with UnivAssist – knowledgeable, caring, and passionate team.”

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA - IRVINE
"Having the counselors on our campus is one of the most meaningful ways to convey the essence of our
university. We have hosted three UnivAssist counselor tours and I have been beyond impressed with the genuine interest these visiting counselors have
in learning about our campus and interacting with our students. The depth and caliber of questions from, and conversations with, these counselors underscores
their commitment to helping their students gain entrance into the university they desire. These counselors are beyond gracious, and completely engaged with
our faculty, staff and students throughout the day's events.”
- Victoria Imsirovic, Director Enrollment Services Strategy & Innovation
CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY - PORTLAND
"It was hard to top the experience during my first UnivAssist tour, but they managed to do just that. The Emerging
Tour is highly recommended for a smaller university such as Concordia University. The tour size was perfect – enough to have a great mix of schools, without
being lost in the crowd. The students were eager to learn about the U.S. and were well-educated about their possibilities. The staff make it so you never have
to lift a finger – all details were arranged with the concern of the participant as number one. I can guarantee a return trip from my university in the near

"KIC UnivAssist offers excellent customer service to meet the needs of all university representatives.
They have a great knowledge of education in India and provide many opportunities for reps to meet highly qualified students."
- Talia Popovski, Assistant Director, Undergraduate Admissions
“KIC UnivAssist always delivers more than promised. Exceptional schools, and unbelievable logistics that allow schools to interact with over 30 schools in just 12 days. Not only do they deliver, but the care for participants is beyond any other tour out there.”
- Karen Mark, Assistant Director of International Admission
BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY, STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK
“I sincerely appreciate KIC UnivAssist’s presentations to students and their parents –
the admission process to USA colleges and universities is not for the faint of heart. UnivAssist is well informed and provides a valuable
service not only to students and their parents but to those who serve as college counselors in secondary schools by keeping them informed and
updated. It is apparent (and appreciated) that UnivAssist is highly regarded by the college counselors at the schools we visit.”
- Pat Wrobel, International Student Recruiting, Undergraduate Admissions
SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY
“The KIC UnivAssist’s Counselor Tour gave us the opportunity to showcase our faculty and campus in a way that isn't possible through our visits to international schools. We also were able to meet personally and in a meaningful way with a variety of counselors from around the world. We expect that this will have a big impact on our international recruitment efforts. While the students may change from year to year it is the relationships with the schools that are key to successful global engagement. We are excited to take what we've learned and incorporate this into our recruitment strategies.”
ORANGE COAST COLLEGE
“This is my 7th KIC tour. What I like most about KIC UnivAssist is the student engagement portion and talking to the students about U.S. education. I like the small group format because students have multiple exposures to all the universities and colleges here. I also like the fact that there is a diversity of institutions and I also like the pace of the tour and the large variety of schools – international and national.”
- Kristoffer Toribio, Recruiting Coordinator, International Student - Global Engagement Center
UNIVERSITY OF NORTHERN IOWA
"My experience working with KIC UnivAssist has been very positive. From my very first interaction with the staff,
they came off as very knowledgeable, dedicated, and passionate. My experience traveling on the Emerging India Tour proved these initial observations to be correct. I
was very happy with the organization and implementation of the tour. The selection of the schools visited helped to facilitate quality interactions with many promising
prospective students as well as contact with school counselors. Most of all, I was impressed with the KIC UnivAssist leaders' genuine concern for the well-being and
success of all the tour members and their tireless and professional work to make the tour a positive experience. I would be happy to recommend KIC UnivAssist to any
school interested in growing their undergraduate Indian population."
- Kristi Marchesani, Assistant Director, International Admissions
FOOTHILL + DE ANZA COLLEGES
"I've done many India recruitment tours over the years that were organized both by American and Indian
companies, and the small group tours with UnivAssist gave me by far more exposure to qualified undergraduates and their counselors than I've ever before
experienced. KIC, a well-regarded Indian counseling organization, offers test preparation classes in many of India's best secondary schools and enjoys close
ties with both school owners and school counselors. These strong relationships opened doors in many schools for the diverse colleges and universities on
this tour to have access to entire assemblies of grade 10 and 11 students. We visited five cities and three or four schools a day. In each case, UnivAssist
had provided counselors with advance detail about the benefits and strengths of our particular schools, so they had interested students waiting to talk with
each of us. This is the first time I have really felt that counselors were excited about the outstanding transfer opportunities afforded to my students and
the value of my inexpensive tuition. I know that from now on my colleges will be recommended by these counselors. The other tour participants and I were all
very impressed with UnivAssist's approach. We kept saying to each other, 'they really are doing something different!' I highly recommend that my college and
university colleagues who want to build quality undergraduate Indian enrollment give UnivAssist Tours a try!"
- George Beers, Dean of International Programs
WESTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY
“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 and hopefully planted relationships that will continue to grow in the future.”
OLD DOMINION UNIVERSITY
“KIC UnivAssist is a great option for undergraduate Indian student recruitment.
I visited high schools with them that I would have never been invited to on my own, never would have known existed, and some whose
location I would have never found.”
- David Danenberg, International Recruitment Coordinator
“KIC UnivAssist has become an industry leader in international student recruitment. Their tours
give unprecedented access to key high schools in both established and emerging markets, and their small group format adds tremendous value.
KIC UnivAssist should be an institution’s company of choice when it comes to recruitment tours.”

"The University of Arizona selects UnivAssist for our recruitment in India because of their professionalism,
commitment to education, and connections to great schools in the country. KIC UnivAssist takes customer service to a new level. Their professionalism and
attention to detail make recruitment in India effective and stress free. UA has had nothing but positive experiences!”
- Lindsay Loebig, Assistant Director of International Recruitment & Outreach
“Working with KIC UnivAssist has been one of the best decisions I made as a new Director of

- Patricia Corcoran, Director of International Relations
