Tomorrow (Sunday, September 18th) from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, Western New England University will hold its annual college fair in the Alumni Healthful Living Center on campus. Starting at 3:00 pm, we will hold financial aid sessions for any interested parents and students. There will be over 200 colleges and universities in attendance tomorrow, so students and parents will have ample opportunities to speak with Admissions Representatives, including Admissions Counselors from Western New England University. Dr. Charles Pollock, Vice President for Enrollment Management at Western New England University recently appeared on Springfield's Channel 22 News to speak about the fair. Please see the video below for more information regarding our annual fair.
Like last year, our International Recruiter Michelle Kowalsky is traveling around the world to find new students to attend Western New England University. Let's see where Michelle is checking in from this year!
On August 26th we welcomed the class of 2015 which consisted of students from France, Ivory Coast, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, and Nigeria.Classes are now in full swing and the Admissions Office has begun traveling to recruit the class of 2012.
My first international recruitment trip has brought me to Sao Paulo and Rio de Janiero, Brazil with the EducationUSA offices in each city. During the trip I met over 150 students and attended two high school fairs and two college fairs all in four days. Although I was very busy, I did have a little bit of time to sightsee! It is the end of the winter in Brazil (which is not the same as the end of winter in New England) but Copacobana and Ipanema Beach still seemed to be popular destinations (see pictures below). According to the locals and every tour book that I looked at, the main attraction in Rio de Janiero is Cordova Mountain and the Christ the Redeemer Statue. Both were incredible sights to see!!
Brazil was only the first of many countries that I will be visiting this fall. My passport will be stamped in South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, India, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates in the next few weeks. The University continues to be very interested in having international students come here to study as well as providing opportunities for our current students to study abroad.
