As IHS continually strives to provide the best opportunities and experiences for its students, on October 5th we were fortunate to host the 2015 United States India Educational Foundation’s (USIEF) annual college fair with around a dozen representatives from various universities across the U.S. (from California to New York and Minnesota to Florida). Our students were able to interact one-on-one with the admission representatives, learn what the universities had to offer and what was expected of them to gain admission. We were also fortunate to have a representative from the U.S. Consulate General’s office in Chennai discuss the visa process. Additionally, the students learned the fine art of professional networking while also dispelling the myth that education in the U.S. has to be a significant financial burden. As a college/career counselor for the school, this was a great experience for all of us and we plan on having several such events in the years to come.
