The ninth annual Metro New York Tour has been scheduled for mid-July. The Metro NY Tour commenced on Sunday, July 15, 2018 and concluded on Friday, July 20, 2018. Our Manager Global Reach/Guidance Counselor Ms. Sumera Shaheen was invited to attend this Counselor tour. This six-day tour gave the opportunity to tour eight of the finest colleges and universities in the state. Metro New York Counselor Tour is the consortium of international admissions officers fromFairfield University, Fairleigh Dickinson University NJ, Fordham University NY, Hofstra University NY, Long Island University (LIU), Brooklyn NY, Pace University NY, St. John’s University NY, The New School (Eugene Lang / Parsons). The campus visit was the opportunity to get a firsthand view of these colleges. It has given a chance to talk to students, faculty, and financial aid and admission officers of all universities. The tour has benefited in all ways to help out our students by giving them all the answers to the important questions like the average class size and the student-to-faculty ratio, campus meal plan, current freshman class, diversity of campus, social scenes, kind of activities available, dorm space, students commuters and campus residents. Overall it was a great experience of visiting top universities, networking with other counselors and international student recruiters and exchanging of knowledge with colleagues from all different type of institutes and excellent platform for professional development.
